I am a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) and a visiting professor at École de Technologie Supérieure, Montreal.

I lead the Distributed Systems group at Lancaster, and I co-lead the Data Acquisition & Infrastructure Theme at the Centre of Excellence in Environmental Data Science (CEEDS).

Research Agenda

I work to enable distributed applications to traverse different sorts of infrastructural boundaries. In the context of cloud computing, this entails looking into API interoperability and migration technologies, as well as related decision support issues. These and more challenges are collectively referred to as Cross-Cloud Computing.

I am interested in fog computing, particularly adaptive edge resource placement using micro-clouds. I am equally interested in resource-rich deployments (e.g. IoT) and resource-poor ones (e.g. data centre-remote locations).

I also work on border-free network architectures in intent-driven systems, systems of systems, and information centric networks. Finally, I advocate network-awareness which involves measuring networked systems, evaluating network protocols, and proposing new network management strategies.
