Welcome to Sanjay Ahuja's home page







Hi. I am a Full Professor of Computer Science in the
School of Computing at the University of North Florida. I joined the School of Computing as an Associate Professor in the College of Computing, Engineering, and Construction at UNF in 1999. Prior to this I was an Assistant Professor at Grand Valley State University in Michigan. I graduated with my Ph.D in Computer Science and Engineering (1993) from the University of Louisville. I also have an M.S. in Electrical Engineering (1990) from the University of Louisville. I have a B.Engg. in Electronics Engineering (1987) from the University of Bombay. I am active in consulting and technology training . I am a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Besides the IEEE, I am a member of several professional organizations. I am the Faculty Advisor to the UNF chapter of the Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE) Computer Science Honor Society. I received the Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching Award from the University of North Florida Provost and President in Fall 2003. I am the 2010-2014 FIS Distinguished Professor in Computer and Information Sciences at the University of North Florida. I was voted Students' Choice Outstanding Professor, College of Computing Sciences and Engineering, Department of Computer and Information Sciences, in December 2001. I have been selected as an OFE Faculty Fellow at the University of North Florida for the 2005-2006 academic year. I have 83 refereed research publications in journals and international conferences with Google Scholar reporting 485 citations for my publications with an h-index of 12 and an i10-index of 16. I established and direct the Cloud Computing Research Group (CCRG) at UNF. I am listed in the Who's Who In Engineering Higher Education and the Who's Who in America, 2009 edition. I am a member of, and represent UNF, at the SPEC Research Group (RG), the SPEC RG Cloud Working Group, and the the SPEC RG Big Data Working Group.
