Hai Jiang, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Computer Science
Arkansas State University
Dr. Hai Jiang is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Arkansas State University. His research interests lie in fields of Parallel and Distributed Systems, High Performance Computing and Networking, Modeling and Simulation, and Security.
In Parallel and Distributed Systems area, Jiang proposed an application-level thread migration and checkpointing scheme, MigThread, to support load balancing, load sharing and fault tolerance in heterogeneous environments. It can bring flexibility into Distributed Computing such as Cluster Computing, Grid Computing, Cloud Computing and Autonomic Computing.
In High Performance Computing area, Jiang has been working with researchers in Computational Chemistry, Computational Physics, and Bioinformatics fields to help them parallelize and port their code to parallel and distributed computing environments for performance gains. Recently, parallelization in GPU clusters is under investigation, especially for the applications with strong data dependency.
In Modeling and Simulation area, Jiang has interest in discrete event simulations with speculative implementation.
In Security area, Jiang is working in data (Cryptography), computer and network security fields. Current projects include trust and reputation management, and secure distributed storage systems.
