I am currently building WINE, a platform for experimenting with data-intensive techniques. For example, WINE has allowed us to measure the typical length of zero-day attacks in the real world. Researchers in academia can access the WINE platform at Symantec Research Labs.
I previously worked on improving the dependability of embedded
systems (addressing soft errors in networks-on-chip), of enterprise
systems (addressing the predictability of fault-tolerant
middleware) and of large-scale distributed systems (addressing
operator errors during software upgrades).
My doctoral dissertation identified the leading causes of both planned and
unplanned downtime due to upgrades in large distributed systems.
I also studied the predictability of
fault-tolerant middleware and the reliability of communication protocols for
Word cloud generated via Wordle.
About MeI am a Senior Research Engineer at Symantec Research Labs. I received my Ph.D. from the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department of Carnegie Mellon University, working with Prof. Priya Narasimhan. I was also affiliated with the Parallel Data Lab and with Cylab. Previously, I received undergraduate degrees from the École Polytechnique in Paris and the "Politehnica" University in Bucharest.
