On leave during 2012–13
NOTE: I'm on leave for the 2012–13 academic year,
working at Pure Storage
in Mountain View, CA. While I plan to spend about a day per
week on UCSC business, I'll primarily be advising current
graduate students and helping with
SSRC business. As a
result, replies to email may be somewhat delayed.
If you need to meet with me, please contact Cynthia McCarley for an appointment.
I'm the Director of the NSF I/UCRC Center for Research in Storage Systems (CRSS) and the Associate Director of the Storage Systems Research Center here at UC Santa Cruz, where I explore issues in file and storage systems and, more generally, distributed systems and operating systems. My current projects include archival storage systems, scalable file system indexing, file systems for next-generation storage technologies, file system security, and petabyte-scale storage systems. I'm also interested in storage system benchmarks, algorithms to more efficiently manage storage, and information retrieval from very large text and multimedia corpora as well as other problems in computer systems and security.
I'm always looking for graduate students and advanced undergraduates interested in any of these areas of research, and may be able to support you as a student. Please read this page if you are interested in applying for a position.
FWIW, my Erdös number is 3.
The best way to contact me is via e-mail (see address above). However, I only read email once or twice per day, so if you need a fast response to a short message, please use instant messaging (I have both Jabber and AOL Instant Messenger accounts). Phone messages aren't a good way to reach me; I strongly prefer communication via IM or email unless we've arranged a phone call in advance.
