Research Experience

Postdoctoral Researcher, University of Utah -- August 2017 – Present
Work with the FLUX research group and contribute to the CloudLab,
 an NSF-funded large-scale cloud computing testbed. Areas of focus: benchmarking and performance analysis, configuration and experiment management on the testbed, integration of cloud and HPC resources, analysis of the power efficiency of ARM processors.

In 2015-2017, I worked with FLUX as a research assistant (partially remote)


Research Assistant, University of Colorado at Boulder -- August 2014 – May 2017
Develop and evaluate techniques for predictive modeling in analysis of performance and energy consumption of parallel applications, including codes for Adaptive Mesh Refinement simulations


Intern, Globus Genomics team, Computation Institute, University of Chicago -- May-July 2014
Develop enhancements to the Globus Genomics infrastructure built upon the Galaxy
platform and Amazon Web Services; develop Galaxy tools for material science research


Research Assistant, University of Colorado at Boulder -- May 2012 – May 2014
At Knight Lab: contribute to design of a $2M high-memory bioinformatics cluster; develop a prototype.
In collaboration with Argonne National Laboratory: develop management tools for
scientific computing in multi-cloud environments using Nimbus platform


Intern, National Center for Atmospheric Research -- May-2011 – September 2012
Data-intensive cluster development, system administration, benchmarking
