Research Interests

I am a Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Department of Computer Science at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. I am the founding Director of a university-wide resilience center CRISP. I received the Alexander von Humboldt Research Award (2018), the Adobe Faculty Award (2017), the AT&T Labs VURI Award (2016), the Google Faculty Award (2015), and the IBM Faculty Award (2014). I am an ACM Distinguished Scientist (2013), a Senior Member of IEEE (2007) and of ACM (2009), and a Distinguished Speaker for ACM (2012). I serve on the IEEE Computer Society Board of Governors for the 2017-20 term. My research interests are in distributed systems and dependable computing. I am proudest of the 21 PhD students and 50 Masters thesis students who have graduated from our research group and are in various stages of building wonderful careers in industry or academia. In our group of 12 graduate students, 3 undergraduate students, and 3 Research Scientists, we have far too much fun building and breaking real systems. Along the way, we have won or been runner up for 11 best paper awards at IEEE/ACM conferences.
