CSM 031: Introduction to Computer Systems (Masters)
Overview of Activities
I'm interested in developing open and principled middleware solutions for complex systems such as grid and large scale sensor networks. I'm particularly interested in problems of fault-tolerance and resilience, and how aspect-oriented programming and computational reflection can be applied to provide these properties in the above systems.
I have been a lecturer at Lancaster since January 2005, after an intervening spell as a post-doctoral researcher at AT&T Shannon Laboratory (NJ, USA), on an INRIA scholarship. I received my PhD in January 2004 for my work at LAAS-CNRS (France) on multi-level reflection applied to fault-tolerant systems. At LAAS, I've worked among others on the EU ISP Dependable Systems of Systems project (IST-1999-11595), and the EU Cabernet Network of Excellence. At Lancaster I'm co-investigator on the Divergent Grid project (EPSRC EP/C534891), and the EU FP7 Diva project (Dynamic Variability in complex, Adaptive systems).
