    We present a method to design parallel algorithms for the constrained combinatorial optimization problems. Our method solves and generalizes many classical combinatorial optimization problems including the stable marriage problem, the shortest path problem and the market clearing price problem.

    Database management systems (DBMS) expose dozens of configurable knobs that control their runtime behavior. Setting these knobs correctly for an application's workload can improve the performance and efficiency of the DBMS. But such tuning requires considerable efforts from experienced administrators, which is not scalable for large DBMS fleets. This problem has led to research on using machine learning (ML) to devise strategies to optimize DBMS knobs for any application automatically.

    Git is a version control system designed to allow software engineers to collaborate on projects easily and have a history of their code revisions. It is widely used in industry and you'll probably use it in some of your classes. Unfortunately, this isn't really something that's taught in courses and by the time you reach the job market, you might already be expected to know how to do this.

    The massive growth of online advertising has created a need for commensurate amounts of user tracking. Advertising companies track online users extensively to serve them targeted advertisements. On the surface, this seems like a simple process: a tracker places a unique cookie in the user’s browser, repeatedly observes the same cookie as the user surfs the web, and finally uses the accrued data to select targeted ads.  However, the reality is much more complex.
