Distributed Database Research
My Ph.D. research was with Prof.
Bhargava at Purdue University
in the area of distributed database systems. We worked with a large
group of other students on adaptable distributed database systems.
Our research included:
- Adaptability Models: Ways in which
distributed database systems can be made adaptable to changes
in the application environment in which they are running.
- Adaptable Implementation: An implementation
of the RAID distributed database system.
- Communication Protocols: The performance
of communication in distributed database systems New implementations
of communications primitives specifically tuned for distributed
databases. These implementations include the PUSH system for developing
user-level communications protocols that run inside the operating
- Experiments: Experiments on adaptability
