This is my personal website - if you want to learn more about my work, please visit the group website.

I am hiring Ph.D. students. If you are interested, please drop me an email with your CV and GitHub link. See here for more details.

My research focuses on building tools and protocols that facilitate big-data management and movement over the Internet. I study, design, and build intelligent protocols for the next-generation Internet. I utilize these protocols to simplify large science data management and introduce novel functionality that are difficult to implement today. My research contributes both to networking and large-data management research. I run the next-generation networking lab at Tennessee Tech.

In addition to my research, I regularly teach graduate and undergraduate level classes, serve as a TPC member, and review papers for several journals and conferences. I also contribute to free software communities both related to my research and outside academia, organize hackathons, and maintain research infrastructure.
