His earlier appointments include the Saab Endowed Chair Professorship, faculty at Boston University and multiple sabbaticals at Microsoft Research.
His research interests focus on design, analysis and assessment of trustworthy (dependable & secure) distributed systems and software. The emphasis is on composite issues of dependability and security for web-scale SW/OS, verification/validation of distributed protocols and especially “trusted/secure systems by design”. His group's research activities have garnered sustained support from the European Commission, German Science Foundation (DFG, Loewe etc), US-NSF, US-DARPA, US-ONR, Microsoft, Hitachi, IBM, NASA, Boeing, Saab, Volvo, SSF, Vinnova, Daimler Chrysler among many others. He is also a recipient of the US-NSF CAREER award, Microsoft and also the IBM Faculty Award.
Suri currently serves as the associate Editor-in-Chief for the IEEE Trans. on Dependable and Secure Computing (TDSC) and an inaugural editorial board member for TDSC. His editorial board roles have included IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing, IEEE Transactions on Big Data, IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, ACM Computing Surveys, Journal of Security and Networks, and has been an editor for the IEEE Trans. on Parallel and Distributed Systems. He is a member of IFIP WG 10.4 on Fault Tolerance and Dependability, and on advisory boards for IBM, Intel, NASA, Uppsala University, European Commission RISEPTIS Board for Trust and Security, and a member of Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing Academic Advisory Board (TCAAB). He has served as the PC Chair for multiple IEEE conferences such as DSN/DCCS, SRDS, HASE, ISAS, Microsoft-TUD RAF, and ICDCS.
Suri chaired the IEEE TC on Dependability and Fault Tolerance, and the Steering Committee of IEEE DSN conference.
