*Research in the Distributed Systems Research Group*

High-performance and large-scale distributed computer systems have become critical instruments in the world’s most challenging scientific, medical, engineering, and economic endeavors. The DSRG explores the scalability and reliability issues that abound in such extreme computing environments, comprising hundreds of thousands or even millions of components.

Some focus areas include:

* data communication, analysis and management;

* fault-tolerant computing;

* large-scale system and application monitoring and program analysis;

* performance and energy-aware computing; and

* adaptive runtime systems.

The DSRG maintains strong collaborations with leading U.S. national labs including the Lawrence Livermore, Los Alamos and Sandia National Labs; this affords us opportunities to collaborate with world-class scientists and on exclusive computing platforms.

I am committed to diversity and inclusivity with a strong leadership record in related initiatives, most recently serving as General Chair for Tapia 2017. I welcome applications from all including those traditionally underrepresented in our field (women, racial minorities and persons with disabilities).
