Green Ubiquitous Autonomous Networking System (GUAN'S) Lab

We are a computer science research group at the Kent State University. Our aim is to design next-generation hybrid hetrogenous HPC-Cloud computing systems and workflow tools for current HPC, Big Data, and Deep Learning AI communities.

Our current research interests include:

  1. Fault tolerance design for HPC applications.
  2. HPC-cloud: workflow, monitoring, scheduling, and storage.
  3. Deep learning visualization: visual debugger.
  4. Big data analytics: tools and systems.
  5. Quantum computing: algrithms, compiler and system design.

We are located at Department of Computer Science, Kent State University in Northern Ohio. We are closely collaborating with DoE national laboratories (Los Alamos National Laboratory, Pacific Northwestern National Laboratory, Argonne National Laboratory and Brookheaven National Laboratory), NSF sponsored data centers and industry companies.

We are always looking for passionate new PhD students, Master students and visiting scholars to join the team

We are grateful for funding from Kent State University, DoE Los Alamos National Laboratory, Amazon AWS and Google Cloud platform, computation resources from Chameleon Cloud, and donations from Xilinx
