Am a PhD candidate at School of Computer Science, McGill University, working with Bettina Kemme in the DISL lab. My broad area of research is distributed systems. In particular, am working on caching and adaptability on component-based system in order to achieve scalability, availability, and responsivity in a dynamic work-loading environment. Prior to that, I obtained my master degree from School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Ottawa where my research was focusing on utilizing sensor web services for smart grid applications.
To know more about my current area of research, you can explore my comprehensive exam literature review report.
