My research experience is in HPC and scalable systems research with a focus on communication and networks. In my dissertation I examined contention in the memory subsystem as a result of one-sided communication. I studied power saving opportunities in the network fabric and how we can develop dynamic, and responsive network monitoring. In the future I would like to apply my knowledge of communications and networks to improve the performance of applications and develop efficient end-to-end workflows. More broadly, my long-term career goals are to engage in HPC research that has a direct impact application performance and scalability.
