A Professor in the College of Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology, she directs the research programs in Distributed Data Intensive Systems Lab (DiSL), examining performance, security, privacy, and data management issues in building large scale distributed computing systems. She and the DiSL research group have been working on various aspects of distributed data intensive systems, ranging from Big Data technology, Cloud Computing and cloud datacenters, decentralized and social network computing, mobile and location based services, sensor network and event stream processing, to service oriented computing and architectures. She has published over 300 international journal and conference articles. Her research group has produced a number of open-source software systems, among which the most popular ones include WebCQ, XWRAPElite, PeerCrawl, GTMobSIM, and SHAPEi. She is a co-recipient of the best paper award from a number of conferences and organizations, including ICDCS 2003, WWW 2004, 2005 Pat Goldberg Memorial Best Paper Award, IEEE Cloud 2012, IEEE ICWS 2013. She is an elected IEEE Fellow and a recipient of IEEE Computer Society 2012 Technical Achievement Award, "For pioneering contributions to novel internet data management and decentralized trust management". She received the 2012 Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Advisor award from Georgia Institute of Technology. She is an internationally recognized expert in the areas of Big data systems and data analysis, Cloud computing and cloud datacenters, Database Systems, Distributed Computing, Internet Computing Systems, and Service oriented computing. She is currently co-Chair of the 38th International Conference on Very Large Data Bases (VLDB 2012). In addition to services as general Chair and PC Chairs of numerous IEEE and ACM conferences in Data Engineering, Very Large Databases and Distributed Computing fields, she has served, or is serving, on editorial Boards of several international journals, including ACM Transactions on Internet Technology (TOIT), ACM Transactions on Web (TWEB), IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (TKDE), Int. Journal of Very Large Databases (VLDB Journal), Distributed and Parallel Databases (Springer), Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing (JPDC). Currently she is the Editor in Chief of IEEE Transactions on Service Computing (TSC).
