The goal of Prof. Akella’s research is to create models, platforms (architectures) and design methodologies to support high performance and low power computing requirements applications such as networking, location aware services, multimedia, compression, error correction, scientific computation and computational biology. The central premise of the research is that reducing cost and maximizing flexibility are absolutely critical for making computing systems accessible to a broader audience and in turn to have the maximum impact on our society.
Professor Ram Akella is currently Professor and Director of the Center for Large-scale Live Analytics and Smart Services (CLASS), which includes SMART (Social Media Analytics Research Transformation), and the Center for Knowledge, Information Systems and Technology Management (KISMT) at the University of California at Silicon Valley Center/Santa Cruz.
