I'm a PhD-student at the MPI-SWS and work with Peter Druschel (my advisor), Deepak Garg, Rodrigo Rodrigues and Johannes Gehrke.
My research focuses on the design, build and evaluation of distributed and operating systems. Currently I focus on a novel storage system to protect it's important data by design.
- Trusted Storage (FAST'12 WiP)
We study the properties, design, implementation and performance of trusted storage, an architecture that ensures the integrity, confidentiality and accountability of data, by enforcing storage policies at the lowest layer of a storage system, within the hardware and firmware of disk enclosures. The guarantees provided by trusted storage depend only on the integrity and correctness of the trusted device/enclosure firmware and hardware, not on the absence of bugs and security vulnerabilities in any higher level software of a system and operator error or malice.
- Dependable Wireless Safety-Critical Hard-Real-Time Design (IEEE WoWMoM '11)
Design, implementation and verification of a wireless electric bicycle brake using Chess's MyriaNed nodes and Modest. Assumptions: 250 ms total reaction time (100 ms mechanical reaction time, 150 ms for communication), no fail-safe, ~60% message loss rate. This video demonstrates the wireless bicycle brake.
