Calton's research interests are in the areas of distributed computing,
Internet data management, and operating systems. In distributed
systems, his focus is on extended transaction processing, system
survivability, and Internet applications. In operating systems, he is
applying the idea of specialization .
Comparing with usual centralized systems, distributed and parallel
systems softwares display unique characteristics in distance,
complexity, extensibility, concurrency and availability. Making
software handle these problems in a reliable and efficient way is the
emphasis of Calton Pu's work. In the Infosphere project, he is
developing concepts and software for Internet-scale applications
driven by information flow such as real-time decision support, digital
libraries, and electronic commerce.
The sponsors for Calton Pu's research include both government funding
agencies such as DARPA, NSF, and companies from industry such
as IBM, Intel, and HP. He is an affiliated faculty of Center for Experimental Research
in Computer Systems (CERCS), Georgia Tech Information Security
Center (GTISC), and Tennenbaum
Institute. Currently, he is mainly involved in three
projects, in addition to several other collaborations
around the world.
Positions available: Georgia Tech is recruting good graduate students.
