Big data applications have imposed unprecedented challenges in data analysis, storage, organization and understanding due to their heterogeneity, volume, complexity, and high velocity. These challenges are for both computer systems researchers who investigate new storage and computational solutions to support fast and reliable access to large datasets and application scientists in various disciplines who exploit these datasets of vital scientific interest for knowledge discovery. In this talk, I will talk about my research in data storage and I/O systems, particularly in solid-state devices (SSDs) and erasure codes to provide cost effective solutions for big data management for high performance and reliability.


Dr. Xubin He is a Professor and the Graduate Program Director of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Commonwealth University. He is also the Director of the Storage Technology and Architecture Research (STAR) lab. Dr. He received his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of Rhode Island, USA in 2002 and both his MS and BS degrees in Computer Science from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China, in 1997 and 1995, respectively.  His research interests include computer architecture, reliable and high availability storage systems and distributed computing. He has published more than 80 refereed articles in prestigious journals such as IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (TPDS), Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing (JPDC), ACM Transactions on Storage, and IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing (TDSC), and at various international conferences, including USENIX FAST, USENIX ATC, Eurosys, IEEE/IFIP DSN, IEEE IPDPS, MSST, ICPP, MASCOTS, LCN, etc. He is the general co-chair for IEEE NAS’2009, program co-chair for MSST’2010, IEEE NAS’2008 and SNAPI’2007. Dr. He has served as a proposal review panelist for NSF, various chair roles and committee members for many professional conferences in the field. Dr. He was a recipient of the ORAU Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award in 2004, the TTU Chapter Sigma Xi Research Award in 2010 and 2005, and TTU ECE Most Outstanding Teaching Faculty Award in 2010. He holds one U.S. patent. He is a senior member of the IEEE, a member of the IEEE Computer Society and USENIX.
