My research interests are in the area of operating systems, computer architecture and system software.

Since joining IBM in 1993 I have contributed to the following projects:
  • MPI and task scheduler of the IBM SP1/2 scalable cluster
  • K42 scalable operating system
  • Linux operating system with focus on cluster and enterprise services
  • Memory management in virtualized environments
  • Multi-core architectures
  • Network applications
  • Cloud Computing
My group is generally involved in operating systems research related to Linux and AIX and filesystems, computer architectures, database technology and network applications stacks.

I hold a Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University in Electrical Engineering (1992) and a Diplom Informatik Degree in Computer Science from the Technical University of Karlsruhe Germany.

I co-authored over 90 papers in the above mentioned areas.
