Directed Research


Are you a USC student and looking for research experience? I am currently looking for good students that want to conduct small research projects in the area of modeling and simulation of parallel and distributed computing systems (cloud computing, grid computing, or clusters), with emphasis on the development of scheduling and resource provisioning algorithms.

If you have interest in any of the research projects below, please contact me ( rafsilva@…). In addition, please visit the USC’s guidance for Directed Research students for additional information on how to proceed. Note that Directed Research is an unpaid position, but counts towards unit credits.


List of Projects

Will be soon updated for Fall 2020 term.
