Welcome to the PACE Lab at Stony Brook University! Check out the gallery to see what we are up to.

Our research group is broadly interested in performance analysis and modeling of computer systems.
Our current research focuses on performance issues, such as interference and resource management, in cloud computing.
Check out our publications to learn more about our work.

Our research is supported by grants from NSF, Google, IBM, Azure, and AWS.
