I am an associate professor at the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering in Concordia University . My research is focused on Service Computing, Mobile Computing and Cloud Computing. Service computing brings flexibility, interoperability, and composability to software systems. Service computing combining with mobile computing and cloud computing is going to pave the new landscape of software engineering, pervasive computing and high performance computing. I am exploring the domain from the following aspects:

  • Web service modeling: formal models, such as automata, process algebra and Petri net, to model Web service
  • service composition: automatic planning algorithms
  • monitoring, diagnosis, repair, and reconfiguration
  • personal information aid with mobile devices: marsh up, search, and composition for personal information aid.
  • services over clouds, multi-tenant architecture

If you are looking for a supervisor for your graduate study and self-motivated, you are welcome to contact me. I am recruiting students in the directions of Web services, Web service composition, cloud computing, and software engineering. You are welcome to check my students list to see what they are doing and how they are funded. Tip on your message to me: in order to be poped up from all the queries I receive everyday, I suggest you to include the following information in your email:

  1. your transcripts from the recent program you finished or will finish;
  2. what kind of topics interested you;
  3. your career expectation;
  4. your demand on scholarship.
Tip on funding: I give full financial support to all my students, including all my master's students. Maybe it is a wrong term to use "I give". Actually my students "earn" their money by their work. Without their work, I cannot ask for money from the funding agancies or my commerical clients. Therefore, your work is essential to get a scholarshop. I give scholarship to oversea students at Ph.D. level, not at master's level. If you are an oversea student applying for our master's program, I suggest you to apply our program online directly. You do not need a supervisor for your application. Once you are accepted and start your program, you can contact me for my supervision. Actually the best time to contact me is after your first term in our program and if your GPA>3.4.
