I am an RSM in the Services Analytics group of the Cognitive Computing and Industry Solutions department. I joined IBM as a postdoctoral researcher in November 2012. My interests mainly revolve around big data analytics, data center management, data sharing in privacy-constrained systems and containerized clouds.
Nowadays, I spend most of my time working in predictive maintenance.
I graduated with a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETHZ) in September 2012. My supervisors were Prof. Gustavo Alonso and Prof. Timothy Roscoe, from the Systems Group. Prior to that, in 2008 I got my Eng. degree in Computer Science from the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
During my Ph.D., I was a summer intern at IBM T.J. Watson, in the Middleware and Virtualization Management group and worked on efficient placement algorithms for distributed applications in large data centers.
Most recently, I have served as a reviewer for EDBT, Eurosys, VLDB, Middleware, JISA, IJSNET, JNCA, Software: Practice and Experience, ACM MobileSoft and GHC.
