Dr. Payman Samadi
Post-doctoral Research Scientist
Columbia University

Payman Samadi received his Ph.D. degree in photonics and telecommunications from McGill University, Montreal, QC, Canada in 2012.  He was a product manager at Optiwave Systems Inc. leading optical system simulation software tools.  He is currently a post-doctoral research scientist at the lightwave research laboratories of Columbia University, New York, NY, USA.  His research interests include network architecture, software-defined networking and optical interconnects for applications in data centers and distributed computing.


The rise of cloud computing and big data has enormously increased the deployment of data centers.  Majority of the data centers are small to mid-sized, generally located in metro-scale distances and are actively communicating for services such as data replication, Virtual Machine (VM) migration, backup, load balancing or fault/disaster recovery.  This work presents a software-defined optical network to provide on-demand, bandwidth-selective and high throughout inter data center connectivity in metro-scale distances.
