My current research focuses on security and compliance in service outsourcing environment.

My PhD thesis was on Network Servers and Operating Systems under the direction of Prof. Vivek Pai. In my thesis research, we analyze kernel activities and the interactions between OS and the application under demanding workloads. We have updated the Flash Web server to achieve higher capacity requirements and much better latency profiles. I also studied issues in modern processor architectures such as Simultaneous Multithreading and Chip-Multiprocessor.
