Priya's focus reflects her Ph.D. dissertation, "Transparent Fault Tolerance for CORBA," which won the 1999/2000 Lancaster Award for the Best Graduate Dissertation in engineering and sciences at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her research interests also include "reliability for large-scale enterprise middleware systems, metrics for quantifying dependability, and the composition of reliability with other '-ilities' (security, real-time) in order to build useful systems."
