Anirban Mandal, Ph.D.

Welcome !!! I serve as the Interim Director for the network research and infrastructure (NRIG) group at Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. My primary focus is research on distributed systems and scientific computing. At RENCI, I lead several efforts in cyberinfrastructure research in support of science

My research interests lie in the areas of distributed systems, cloud computing, networking, and data-driven scientific workflows. My research deals with resource provisioning, scheduling, performance analysis, machine learning, and anomaly detection for large scale scientific cyberinfrastructures, next generation networks and experimental testbeds.

Prior to joining RENCI, I  earned my PhD degree in Computer Science from Rice University in 2006 and a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science & Engineering from IIT Mumbai, India in 2000.
