Hi! My name is Noman Bashir, and I’m a systems researcher focusing on energy efficiency and sustainability of large-scale computing and cyber-physical systems. I am pursuing my Ph.D. at Sustainable Computing Lab, University of Massachusetts Amherst with Prof. David Irwin.

I recently concluded my engagement with Google, Inc. as a Student Researcher.
I worked with Nan Deng and Krzysztof Rzadca on resource management in Borg, a cluster management system used inside Google.

Previously, I worked as Research Assosciate at Advanced Communication (AdCom)
lab
with Prof. Naveed-ul-Hassan on enhancing the cost- and energy efficiency of cyber-physical systems with battery backups. I also worked as Research Engineer at Systems and Networks (SysNet)
lab
with Prof. Affan A. Syed on an MSR-funded project focusing on developing novel demand response solutions for the stressed grids of energy deprived countries.
