Data Center Model: The goal is to develop a data model and data management system which is capable of expressing, maintaining, and updating a detailed, cross-layer, online model of an operational data center.
OS/DB co-design: For my Master thesis I worked with SharedDB (an in-memory relational database designed around sharing of computation) and Barrelfish (a realisation of the multi-kernel OS architecture which treats the machine as a distributed system).
