I am a professor at the Department of Computer Science at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. My research interests include reliable distributed systems, high-availability and fault-tolerance, group communication, cluster computing, wireless mobile ad hoc network, and client/server Middleware (CORBA/.NET/J2EE/Web Services).
If you need a good caching solution, I strongly advise to read our recent TinyLFU paper (integrated into the Caffeine Java cache) where we offer a novel cache management scheme, which yielded the best hit ratio among all schemes we have experimented with on all traces we have tested. And like all best things in life, it is totally free -- no royalties to pay and an open source reference implementation. It has been integreated into Cassandra , Infinispan , Spring , neo4j , Allegro , Amplidue , Accumulo , ScalaCache , SCaffeine , ratpack , finagle , druid.io , Mangocache and others.
I am a member of the executive board of the
Haifa Sailing club.
Here is my list of Publications . Many of them are also available through DBLP. And here is what scholar.google.com thinks are my most cited papers . Also, you can check the list of conferences I am and have been involved with and the journals for which I refereed papers in my list of public activities.
I recently spent a great year on sabbatical in INRIA/IRISA, Rennes, France, visiting the ADEPT project and working with Michel Raynal and Michel Hurfin.
In the past, I also spent three years in the
Department of Computer Science
Ken Birman and
Robbert Van Renesse
in the area of distributed systems, mainly on the
I received my D.Sc. from the
Department of Computer Science at the
Technion - Israel Institute of Technology.
My advisor was
Hagit Attiya, and my thesis title was
Consistency Conditions for Distributed Shared Memories.
Here is a glimps of the future. To see the two projects I am most proud of, check here and here.
If you are a single graduate student and want me to be your advisor, read this first. All my Ph.D. students and all but two of my M.Sc. students got married while working with me, and many of them also had children. If you wish to stay single, take this into account! (If you are looking into getting married, sorry, no promisses...)
