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 and SmartNICs
  • Network applications
  • Cloud Computing

My group is generally involved in operating systems research related to Linux and computer architectures, and network applications stacks.

I hold a Ph.D. and M.Sc 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 132 papers in the above mentioned areas.
I co-authored 167 granted patents.

Going further back I have a background in industrial robotics and automatic compiler construction

I am a ACM Distinguished Engineer since 2017 and an NYU Adjunct Full Professor since 2011 ( )
