Biography

Aruna Balasubramanian joined the computer science department at Stony Brook in spring 2015. Prior to that, she was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Washington in Seattle. She received her PhD from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in February 2011. She completed her Masters degree at SUNY Buffalo. 

Research

Aruna Balasubramanian's work incorporates elements of both networking and systems in the context of mobile devices. The goal of her work is to design mobile protocols/systems that radically improve performance. Current mobile system designs make assumptions, that while true for the wired environment, are not valid for the mobile environment. Instead, she wants to re-architect mobile systems to better support current and next-generation applications. Dr. Balasubramanian's recent projects include MobileHub (reduces energy consumption of always-on sensing applications by leveraging heterogenous hardware), WProf (a tool that identifies the bottlenecks during page load), and FindAll (makes mobile applications less reliant on the cloud by building a local search engine on phones, that lets users search locally).
