I am a Ph.D. student in the Computer Science department at the University of New Mexico. I work with Dr. Dorian Arnold in the Scalable Systems Lab. I am also a year-round student intern at Sandia National Laboratories, where I work with Dr. Ryan Grant.
Research Interests
Modern high performance systems are composed of large core counts, commonly characterized by bulk synchronous parallel applications. These environments create patterns of over and under-utilization in the network and memory subsystems. The focus of our work is improving system run time and power efficiency, through intelligent management of network resources. This research ranges from the development of infrastructure to support optimal application bootstrapping to best-practice solutions for monitoring high performance networks. Most recently, our research examines how existing power saving techniques may be extended to find additional savings on nodes and within the network fabric. Additional interests includes work on monitoring and overlay networks such as MRNet.
