I am a researcher working on container-based cloud platforms. I lead research in the area of hybrid cloud security and compliance. My mission is to create leading edge technologies to simplify security and compliance management for enterprise workloads in the cloud. I currently focus on cloud-native compliance, which pioneers concepts such as compliance-by design, DevSecCom(pliance)Ops, and continuous audit readiness. I work with product, service, and solution teams in IBM to deliver these innovations to our clients. Most recently i led the team that implemented the first release of IBM container service, currently known as IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service. My team also developed several technologies in container security that have become a part of IBM Cloud products and services: Vulnerability Advisor and Mutation Advisor. I also partner with open source communities:
my team contributes security capabilities to Linux, containers, and Kubernetes. Recently, we open sourced Nabla containers - a new isolation model for Linux workloads. I am also leading research work in the area of cloud platforms focusing on scalable, resilient orchestration, software-defined networking, resource management, and security.

I am author of over 60 publications and a co-inventor on more than 40 patents. I received a number of awards for my research: IBM Corporate Award, Best of IBM awards, and several Outstanding Technical Achievement Awards.

Before joining IBM I was a PhD student and a Graduate Fellow at Department of Computer and Information Sciences, University of Delaware. In the course of my graduate work I studied probabilistic fault localization algorithms and invented several fault localization techniques. My dissertation was recognized with Allan P Colburn Prize by University of Delaware. I completed my masters degree at AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow, Poland.
