Distributed Computing: From Building Highly Available Intrusion Tolerant Systems to Loosely Coupled Wireless and Sensor Networks

The field of distributed computing has evolved from building infrastructure-based distributed services into wireless and mobile computing, pervasive computing, sensor networks and ubiquitous computing, cloud computing, mobile social networks, and many other interesting fields. Indeed, nearly every computing service that we use today is distributed in nature. In this talk, I will provide an overview of my research in distributed computing over the last six years, ranging from building highly available, scalable and fault-tolerant web server architecture to collecting contact rates among free-ranging mule deer in wilderness environment. I will then discuss three projects in detail:

  • Craft: Enhanced server fault tolerance for improved user experience

  • ARBOR: Hang together rather than hang separately in 802.11 WiFi Networks

  • Project Extremes: Bringing wireless sensor networks technology to monitor extreme environment into elementary school curriculum

The Department holds colloquia throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. These colloquia, open to the public, are typically held on Thursday afternoons, but sometimes occur at other times as well. If you would like to receive email notification of upcoming colloquia, subscribe to our Colloquia Mailing List. If you would like to schedule a colloquium, see Colloquium Scheduling.

Sign language interpreters are available upon request. Please contact Stephanie Morris at least five days prior to the colloquium.
