Recent activities

1.     ENVRI-FAIR FAIRness workshops





I am an assistant professor and senior researcher at University of Amsterdam (UvA). I lead a team on “Quality Critical Distributed Systems” in the context of the System and Networking Lab (SNE). My research focuses on novel programming and control models for quality critical systems on programmable infrastructures such as Clouds, Edges, and Software Defined Networking using optimization, semantic linking, blockchain and artificial intelligence technologies. I am specifically interested in big data management, infrastructure optimization for data intensive applications, and trustworthy service level agreement. 

Since 2014, I obtained more than 3M euro funding from the EU H2020 research program to support my research activities in UvA. I am the scientific coordinator of the project SWITCH (Software Workbench for interactive time critical and highly self-adaptive cloud applications). I am the leader of the Data for Science theme in the environmental science cluster project ENVRIPLUS and lead the technical development work package in its follow up project ENVRI-FAIR. I also lead the UvA effort in ARTICONF, CLARIFY and BLUECLOUD, and VRE4EIC projects. I was involved in a number of other projects, such as the EU FP7 ENVRI project.




Research: Quality Critical Applications on Programmable Infrastructures                                                                             




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.
