About me

I am a Research Scientist, Software Architect and Open Source activist. 

I received a Ph.D. in Distributed Systems from INPG in 2001. During my postdoc at Rice University, I contributed to DynaServer. I studied the design of scalable and highly available e-business servers and I designed the RUBiS benchmark. After leaving Rice, I led a team at INRIA in France to provide open-source middleware for large scale data servers. I was also Chief Architect of the ObjectWeb consortium and leader of the C-JDBC project. In 2005, I joined Continuent where I served as Chief Architect and Chief Scientific Officer. I lead Continuent.org and the Sequoia project that was the basis for Continuent's High Availability Database product line. I am still providing consulting as an independent activity to companies that need to build Highly Available databases and/or web applications.

At the end of 2006,  I joined EPFL as a research assistant. I worked with both the operating systems and dependable systems laboratories. I joined UMass Amherst as a Senior Research Fellow in July 2008. I also worked for Aster Data Systems from October 2008 to May 2010. I currently work for the Laboratory for Advanced System Software with Prashant Shenoy and for the Commonwealth Center for Forensics & Society with Brian Levine.
