I am an Associate Research Scientist holding posistions at two institutions: Taylor Lab at Johns Hopkins University and the Center for Informatics and Computing at Ruder Boskovic Institute. I am also an active member of Galaxy and Genomics Virtual Lab projects.

The focus of my current work is in the area of cloud and distributed computing. I actively work on (1) the CloudMan application providing comprehensive (bioinformatics) analysis environments on cloud computing resources and (2) a federated model of efficient job execution leveraging data locality. The general aims are to enable the needed computations to be performed in the most accessible and efficient way possible.

Overall, my research interests lay in the area of distributed computing accessibility, system automation, and application jobs performance tuning.
