Research Interests

  • Cloud Computing and Data Centers
  • Autonomic Resource and Power Management
  • Big Data Storage, and Processing in the Cloud
The ever-evolving and growing Internet services have set forth many challenges to computer scientists who are constantly looking for effective ways of making it more scalable, secure, reliable and faster. At the same time, there is a need to make these systems self-adaptive and autonomic to reduce human efforts. This is a field of active research which demands state-of-the-art techniques that transcend the boundary of various disciplines of computer science as well as Computer engineering. Dr. Lama's research interests lie broadly at the synergistic intersection of Autonomic, Sustainable and Cloud Computing. He focuses on developing systems, and middleware approaches to autonomic resource provisioning for performance and power control in Cloud environments that can benefit a broad range of applications from Big Data to interactive web services.
