About me

I am a member of the Glasgow Parallelism Group and the Embedded, Networked and Distributed Systems research groups in the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow.

Research Areas

My research interests are in the broad area of scalable reliable parallel and distributed systems. I am working in the RELEASE project that aims to improve the scalability of Erlang/OTP onto commodity architectures with 100,000 cores. I concentrate on scalable persistent storages for Erlang, i.e. Mnesia, CouchDB, Riak and Cassandra. I have measured the scalability and availability of Riak on the Kalkyl Cluster (find more). My another major research focus is to investigate the scalability limits of distributed Erlang. I have developed a benchmarking tool (DE-Bench) to measure the scalability of distributed Erlang. Results are published at the Thirteenth ACM SIGPLAN workshop on Erlang.
