I am interested in distributed computing systems, especially loosely-coupled, heterogeneous and failure-prone ones. My research approach encompasses formal models, algorithm design and analysis, and lower bounds and impossibility proofs.

You can find a list of my publications on my DBLP page. A few older papers are listed here.

My CV: in PDF.


I am currently the chair of the steering committee for the ACM Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing.

I was the editor of the ACM SIGACT News Distributed Computing Column from 2013 to 2019. Here is an archive.
