Postdoctoral Research Fellow
740 N Pleasant St,
Amherst, MA 01003
I am a Research Associate at the Laboratory for Advanced System Software (LASS), University of Massachusetts Amherst, where I work with Prof. Prashant Shenoy. I did my PhD in Computer Engineering (2022) at the Sustainable Computing Lab, University of Massachusetts Amherst, where I was advised by Prof. David Irwin. My research focuses on decarbonizing societal infrastructure including datacenters, edge computing systems, and energy systems.
During my PhD, I worked as a Student Researcher in the Distributed Systems and Parallel Computing Team at Google Research, where I was mentored by Nan Deng and Krzysztof Rządca. Our work, published at EuroSys’21, represents the default resource overcommitment strategy across all of Google’s internal datacenters. I also worked at VMWare Research Group on Computing Sustainability Benchmarking.
Prior to joining UMass, I worked as a Research Assistant at the Advanced Communication Lab at LUMS, Pakistan, and Systems & Networks Research Lab at NUCES-NU, Pakistan. I did my MS in Energy Systems Engineering from Center for Advanced Studies in Energy at NUST, Pakistan. I did my BS in Electrical Engineering
at UET Lahore, Pakistan.
