I joined IBM Research in July 2012 as a member of the Exascale Systems group. Before this I was a postdoc within the Joint Laboratory for Petascale Computing, an initiative of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications and INRIA. I hold a PhD from University of Rennes 1, France (2010) and a Dipl. Eng. degree from Politehnica University Bucharest, Romania (2007). During my PhD I was a member of the Kerdata Team.

My research revolves around scalable storage techniques and fault tolerance for cloud computing and exascale architectures. More specifically, I am interested (among other things) in challenging issues at large scale that relate to data distribution, data access models, data availability and resilience, how to achieve high I/O throughput under concurrency, metadata decentralization, deployment/snapshotting and live migration of virtual machines, checkpoint-restart.
