​Her research interests include programming support and adaptive optimization for cloud computing applications and systems, and the intersection of IoT, data analytics, and cloud. Recently, her focus has been on using these technologies to faciliate sustainability science and engineering for the domains of agriculture (SmartFarm) and ecology (WTB). Her other interests include projects that mentor, support, and encourage young people from underrepresented groups (especially women!) to consider and pursue computer science.
