My general research interests are in improving the dependability of storage systems, distributed systems and networks, operating systems, cloud computing. By dependability, I refer to the security, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, and performance guarantees that need to be achieved to maintain the correctness and performance of operations in large-scale systems. My research approach mainly focuses on the applied/systems perspective, with an emphasis on building practical systems, evaluating systems with empirical experimentation, and deriving fundamental principles of how to design dependable systems in general.
