About me
About me

I'm a fifth year Ph.D. student at the Computer Science Department of Stony Brook University under supervision of Prof. Erez Zadok. My research interests include Operating Systems, File Systems, Storage, Performance Analysis, Green Technologies, and Services Science. At FSL I work (or have worked) within the frameworks of fsbench, green and hpcperf projects. I received B.S. and M.S. degrees in Applied Mathematics and Physics at MIPT - Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. Before coming to Stony Brook I was employed as a kernel developer by Parallels for two years. I was mostly involved in the OpenVZ project there. In summer 2009 I interned at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, and in summer 2010 and 2012 at the IBM Research - Almaden.

I was lucky to get IBM Fellowship for two years in a row, in 2011 and 2012. Thank you to people that made it possible!


While working on different projects, I delve into various areas of computer systems. In this section, I put assorted information that was of particular interest to me:

As part of FSL I'm an official maintainer of Filebench file system and storage benchmark. You can find more about Filebench's unique characteristics at its official page.
DataSeries documentation (alternative URL)
DataSeries is a file format, library and a set of associated tools for efficient processing and storage of I/O traces. FSL and Harvey Mudd College try to put together documentation on this format to make it more usable by community.
Linux Asynchronous I/O Explained
We use Linux asynchronous I/O interface in our trace replayer. While working on it I felt that certain useful information about AIO interface is missing on the Web and decided to write my own story.
Papers Contacts

I try to answer all e-mails but sometimes it takes a while. And I noticed that "a while" becomes longer :( I'm sorry in advance!
