I'm an assistant professor in the CS department at NMSU. I received my Ph.D. from The Ohio State University. [Complete bio ...]

My research interests are in the broad areas of computer systems. I'm particularly interested in anything related to data storage (e.g., non-volatile memories, file systems, big data systems, data-intensive computing). I'm leading the Data Storage Lab@NMSU, where we play with the latest storage technologies and strive to advance the performance, reliability, security, etc. for data, for people.
