About me                     

 

 

 

I received my Ph.D. in computer science in 2004 from the University of Amsterdam (UvA). I am an associate professor and the chair of the Multiscale Network Systems (MNS) research group in the Informatics Institute (IvI) at UvA. I am the technical manager of the Virtual Lab and Innovation Center (VLIC) of LifeWatch ERIC, a European research infrastructure in ecology and biodiversity science.

My research focuses on quality-critical distributed computing, data-intensive workflow management, virtual research environments, and digital twins. I am the Co-PI of the Dutch LTER-LIFE project and coordinate the UvA effort in EU projects ENVRI-HUB next, EVERSE, OSCARS and BlueCloud 2026 to develop Digital Twin Virtual Research Environment, research assets search engine, and Cloud automation and optimization solutions.

I coordinated the project SWITCH (Software Workbench for interactive time-critical and highly self-adaptive cloud applications). I led the Data for Science theme in the environmental science cluster project ENVRIPLUS, and the technical development work packages in ENVRI-FAIR, ARTICONF and CLARIFY projects.

I am an IEEE Senior member and the managing editor of the Journal of Cloud Computing.

 

 

Research: Quality Critical Applications on Programmable Infrastructures 

 

 

Home

In both scientific and industrial contexts, there are distributed application systems which

1.     have very high business value (e.g., on-demand business collaboration platforms), or social impact (e.g., for early warning of disasters); and

2.     have very critical requirements for Quality of Service (QoS) (e.g., tsunami emergency response time) or quality of experience (QoE) (e.g., delivery of ultra-high-definition television or collaborative business interactions); but

3.     are very difficult to develop and operate because of their distributed nature and the high requirements for the runtime environment, and in particular, the sophisticated optimization mechanisms needed for developing and integrating the system components.

Cloud environments provide virtualized, elastic, controllable, and quality on-demand services for supporting complex application systems. However, developing, deploying, and executing quality-critical applications in programmable infrastructure is still difficult and challenging due to a lack of effective programming and control mechanisms.

My research interests have revolved around modeling, developing, controlling, and optimizing such Distributed Quality-Critical Systems. I specifically focus on novel models for programming, executing, and optimizing such applications on programmable infrastructures, such as Cloud- and software-defined networking technologies. My basic approach is to use autonomous agent technologies to decompose system complexity, to develop distributed control and optimization intelligence by combining both application logic and infrastructure programmability, and to investigate self-adaptable cooperative control models for Cloud-based quality-critical systems.
