My areas of interest are Operating Systems and Storage Systems. I have
worked on autmatic block placement to save power and improve performance.
More recently I have been working on eliminating foreground read I/O for
application write requests.

statistics from the traces taken with the Linux kernel
tool. It is implemented in C and its design goal is to be easily
extensible. More info…
