    Research Interests

    I am interested in applying market-based mechanisms to the problem of online resource allocation, with specific application to computational resources. The idea is to create a competitive electronic marketplace where auction mechanisms are used to trade computational resources, such as bandwidth, storage and computation. The goal of such a system would be to make use of currently idle resources, in addition to allocating available resources more efficiently. Such a system presents many interesting research challenges related to economics, networking, algorithms and mechanism design.
