The CSE Division is pleased to announce the addition of six new faculty, beginning in Fall 2013. From contributions to big data and cloud explorations to servers and architectures, they'll help to lead and teach us as we enter a world increasingly shaped by computer science and engineering.


Barzan Mozafari
Assistant Professor

PhD, Computer Science,
University of California Los Angeles, 2011

Barzan Mozafari joins the faculty from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he has been a Postdoctoral Associate. He is passionate about building large-scale data-intensive systems that are more scalable, more robust, and more predictable, with a particular interest in database-as-a-service clouds, distributed systems, and crowdsourcing. In his research, he draws on advanced mathematical models to deliver practical database solutions, adapting concepts and tools from applied statistics, complexity theory, automata theory, and machine learning. He has won several awards and fellowships, including SIGMOD 2012 and EuroSys 2013's best paper awards.
