My research interests include improving performance and memory efficiency of programming language runtime systems, such as Java™ VM, and enterprise applications, running both on bare hardware, on hypervisor, or in containers.

I joined IBM in 1990, and I was also involved in production development projects, including development of an emulator of IBM PC on AIX, which is something similar to the open source emulator QEMU.

I joined IBM Research - Tokyo in 1997, and I was involved in analysis and optimization of Java runtime environment, including development of interpreter and JIT compiler for Java.

My recent research area is memory efficiency in cloud data center. I studied analysis and reduction of memory footprint of Java programs, and I am expanding my research interest to other programs running on cloud datacenter and its enabling technologies, including container technology.
