Summary: The main focus of my multi-disciplinary, and internationally spanned research lies in automating the information technology and providing the right level of abstraction for scientists and engineers of different disciplines (e.g., meteorologists, biologists, physicists, chemists, bio-medical engineers, mechanical engineers, etc.) to be able to perform their research in their own areas, where they are more comfortable, without the need to be distracted by and in some cases lost in the details of information technology. Currently, successful scientists and engineers who are working on complex problems are those who are also up-to-speed with the latest advances in information technology in general and specifically are experts in high performance computing; an area characterized as moving target.

I vision a day when scientists and engineers can perform their experiments in a timely manner without the need to constantly spend (or waste) their time on learning the latest high-performance computing technologies available out there. To make this vision a reality, as a PI or Co-PI, I have been involved in several small and large sponsored research projects in the past five years. To promote this vision through training new generations of engineers and scientists, I have included an educational and workforce training component in almost all my research projects. This new workforce can benefit from the results of my research and become more efficient in their areas of research by getting less and less involved with the unnecessary details of information technology.

Specifically, to provide the right level of abstraction to the meteorologists who conduct research in hurricane forecasting and to the weather officers who run weather simulations in a real-time fashion four times a day, we have developed a Hurricane Mitigation Portal that allows the weather researchers and officers to spend their time on the science part of weather research and forecasting, rather than on tedious and error-prone tasks of compiling, installing, and configuring the forecasting software as is currently the case. In addition, the portal enables the system administrators to easily add or remove computational resources (e.g., clusters, supercomputers, and virtual machines) that cab be allocated dynamically to the various simulation tasks based on preplanned high-level policies, or pressing emergent needs.

This portal is supported by our self-managing and Cluster-, Grid-, and Cloud-enabled workflow managers, meta-schedulers, resource managers, and application profilers.

Unlike other approaches, our research in workflow management investigates distributed algorithms and peer-to-peer protocols that dynamically partition, map, and execute workflows and their corresponding subflows while providing cross-layer fault-tolerant and quality-of-service. We have a prototype based on BPEL and JSDL. Our research in meta-scheduling investigates interoperable protocols that allow existing meta-schedulers to interact. We have a prototype that enables interoperation of IBM’s TDWB, BSC’s eNanos, and Globus’ GridWay. We have also developed an application-agnostic methodology to mathematically model and predict the execution time of long-running applications. We have a primitive but highly usable model for one of the most popular Weather and Research Forecasting (WRF) simulators that quickly estimate the execution time of WRF on currently available clusters.





In summary, my research has been supported by governmental, industrial, academic organizations (e.g., NSF, IBM, Kaseya, TeraGrid, and FIU) for a total of $4.7 million ($1.7M as PI and $3M as Co-PI). I have published 61 papers (3 book chapters, 9 journal papers, 49 conference/workshop proceeding papers) mostly in premier journals and conferences in my research area. I have presented my research to the community through 34 conference and invited lecture presentations and also through numerous poster presentations. Currently, my students and I are actively collaborating and publishing papers with researchers from eight different countries (Argentina, Brazil, China, France, India, Japan, Mexico, and Spain).

Below is a selected list of my sponsored research projects:

NSF PIRE: A Global Living Laboratory for Cyberinfrastructure Application • Enablement (PI; $2.3M; 9/15/07–8/31/11; Co-PI for the first 2 years) Project Summary: The goal of this PIRE project (http://pire.fiu.edu/) is to conduct research and provide international research and training experiences to its participants in the area of Transparent Cyberinfrastructure Enablement by leveraging the Latin American Grid's (LA Grid) established international collaborative programs, resources, and community. CyberInfrastructure (CI) aims to radically simplify the manner by which scientific and business domain experts develop, use, and maintain software applications over distributed computing resources. Our research aims to develop methodologies, platforms, and tools for better enabling CI applications in a way that eases the application development process and make resulting applications more adaptive to future changes of CI. Our approach is characterized as application-driven by basing and focusing our investigation on (1) supporting CI-enablement for a few carefully chosen critical application domains, e.g. weather modeling, life sciences, and healthcare, and (2) developing common methodologies, services and tools for developing CI-enabled applications in these domains. We hypothesize an enabling application development paradigm called Transparent Cyberinfrastructure Enablement (TCE), whose goal is to allow domain experts to effectively express the logic and software artifacts of domain applications while hiding the details of the CI architecture, software, and hardware stack.

Results: This project is just finishing its second year. During the first year, 18 students traveled to 5 countries (Argentina, China, India, Mexico, and Spain), conducted research in 16 TCE-related projects, and published 19 papers (two journals, one book chapter, and 16 conference/workshop papers). They also, presented 18 posters during the FIU-FAU PIRE 2008 workshop. During the second year, 19 students traveled (or still travelling) to 5 countries (Brazil, China, France, India, and Spain).

NSF CI-TEAM: Global CyberBridges (Co-PI; $765K; 10/2/06-6/31/10) •

Project Summary: The goal of the GCB project (http://cyberbridges.net/) is to produce a new generation of minority scientists and engineers capable of fully integrating cyberinfrastructure (CI) into the research, education, professional, and creative processes of scientific disciplines. It establishes a base of sustainability through geographically expanding participation. It is designed to create a network of scientists and researchers that spans six research institutions spread over four regions and three countries: USA, China, Hong Kong, and Brazil.

Results: Results from first-year External Assessment Committee Report: Concluded that GCB program participation had been advantageous for the research of each team, and the program structure and classes worked well. The external assessment report says, “clear prospect for more rapid and computationally advanced research production.” The assumptions about research problems and needs that justified the GCB project were validated by the experience of the teams. GCB has supported over sixty students as either fellows or team members. GCB has produced twenty-six peer-reviewed publications coauthored by GCB students at USA, Brazil, and China. Finally, the “Grid Enablement of Scientific Applications” course was developed and institutionalized by Dr. Sadjadi during the course of this GCB project.

Latin American Grid (PI for three IBM-sponsored research projects; $80K in • total; 9/1/06-present) Project Summary: LA Grid, pronounced "lah grid," is an international multidisciplinary research community and virtual computing grid enabling institutions and industry to extend beyond their individual reach to facilitate collaborative IT research, education and workforce development. LA Grid is the first-ever comprehensive computing grid to link faculty, students, and researchers from institutions across the United States, Latin America and Spain to collaborate on complex industry applications for business and societal needs in the context of healthcare, life sciences and disaster mitigation.

Under this umbrella project, I got three grants from IBM for the following projects:

Transparent Grid Enablement of the Weather Research and Forecast code (PI; $20K;

• 9/1/06-8/31/07) Project Summary: To mitigate the impacts of hurricanes, we need to provide users (e.g., residents, homeowners, business owners, and local, state, and federal governments) with sufficiently accurate information to allow them to plan accordingly. The WRF model Version 2.1.2 software distribution comprises about 360000 lines of source code.

Design and development of the LA Grid MetaScheduler at FIU (PI; $20K; 9/1/06 8/31/07) Project Summary: There is a need for matching and managing jobs on available resources in heterogeneous Grid computing environments.

Our Solution: We are investigating a hierarchical and peer2peer approach to meta-scheduling and meta-brokering. Also, we have developed an adaptive framework for the execution of BPEL workflow processes for job flow management.

Grid Enablement of Hurricane Mitigation Applications (PI; $40K; 6/1/06-5/31/07) • Results: We have been able to successfully develop a prototype for the following

components of our overall solution to Grid Computing:

• A Prototype for a Web-Based Portal for WRF Ensemble Forecast.

• A Prototype for a Job-Flow Management in Grid Computing Environments.

• A Prototype for a Meta-Scheduling in Grid Computing Environment.

• A Prototype for a Modeling the Execution Time of WRF.

• A Prototype for a Transparent Grid Enabler for Java Program.
