Research

I work on the management of storage caches, focusing on complex hierarchies and enhanced storage interfaces. I am an Academic member of the Net-HD (Networking HDTV from the Open Internet) Consortium, within the FCDN working group. Net-HD is part of the MAGNET program, supported by the Chief Scientist of the Ministry of Industry.
