.Research Interests

Calton's research interests are in the areas of service computing, distributed and cloud computing, integration and veracity of big data. His current projects include cloud computing (Elba) and big data (GRAIT-DM) research. Using experimental data from realistic benchmarks, the Elba project studies the interesting phenomena such as very short bottlenecks that have large impact on n-tier system response time. The GRAIT-DM project collects real world data from social sensors (e.g., Twitter and YouTube) and physical sensors (e.g., USGS GSN and NASA TRMM) to detect physical events and manage real-time information on them. The sponsors for Calton Pu's research include both government funding agencies such as NSF, and companies from industry such as HP, Fujitsu, IBM, and Intel.  He is a co-director of Center for Experimental Research in Computer Systems (CERCS), and affiliate faculty of Institute for Information Security and Privacy (IISP) at Georgia Tech.  He is also the director of RCN on Big Data for Smart Cities, with collaborations around the world. Positions available: Georgia Tech is recruiting good graduate students.
