Computing Innovations Fellows (CIFellows) Project 2009-10
Computer Engineering PhD, 2009
Dara Kusic has been awarded a 2009-2010 Computing Innovations Post-doctoral Fellowship of the National Science Foundation and the Computing Research Association (CIFellows). The work funded by the fellowship, and mentored by University of Pittsburgh Computer Science Department Chair Daniel Mosse, will develop fault-detection, diagnostic analysis, and fault-recovery methods aimed at minimizing both the diagnosis latency and cost in high-performance distributed systems. Generally, performance management and fault diagnosis are treated independently of one another by separate control frameworks. By inputting diagnostic information to a controller, this data can be used to initiate rescue and recovery actions aimed at maintaining performance through abnormal system behaviors. Fault-adaptive control technology can integrate control and fault-diagnosis components into a common, model-based framework.
