Replication: Theory and
Practice

Research

I am interested in the theory and practice of dependable distributed systems and distributed data management systems. My contributions to theory include defining new abstractions to help design reliable distributed systems, creating algorithms implementing these abstractions and proving them correct, and establishing related lower bounds. My contributions to systems research have focused on designing, implementing and evaluating reliable data management systems based on group communication. To a large extent, I have been interested in the interplay between theory and practice.

My research is sponsored by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), the Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI), the Hasler Foundation, the European Commission, Yahoo Switzerland, Microsoft Research, and Brazil's Science without Borders program.
