In 2013 I got my Ph.D. Degree in Computer Science from Stony Brook University under the supervision of Prof. Erez Zadok. I'm currently employed at IBM Research - Almaden in the Storage Systems group. My research interests include Operating Systems, File Systems, Storage, Performance Analysis, Green Technologies, and Services Science. At FSL I 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.Resources
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:

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!
