In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her primary areas of investigation include Database, Cloud computing, Operating system, Distributed computing and Component. Her Database research includes themes of Computer data storage, Information repository and World Wide Web. Her research integrates issues of Computer security, Disaster recovery, Server and Projection in her study of Cloud computing.

Her research on Computer security often connects related topics like Communication source. Her work on Component-based software engineering and Metadata as part of general Operating system research is frequently linked to Test case and Extraction, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. Her work deals with themes such as Cryptographic protocol, Software system, Security analysis, Isolation and SIMPLE, which intersect with Distributed computing.

Between 2008 and 2019, her most popular works were:

  • Method and apparatus for automated migration of data among storage centers (157 citations)
  • Application resource manager over a cloud (93 citations)
  • method to automatically map business function level policies to it management policies (85 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Operating system
  • The Internet
  • Computer network

Database, Cloud computing, Data mining, Workload and Operating system are her primary areas of study. Her work carried out in the field of Database brings together such families of science as Graph, World Wide Web, Server and Information repository. Her study in Cloud computing is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Computer security, Distributed computing and Component.

Her research in Distributed computing intersects with topics in Identification and Business agility. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Matching and Multi-image. Her Operating system study deals with Program code intersecting with Computer program.
