I'm a computer science professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz, where I explore issues in file and storage systems and, more generally, distributed systems and operating systems. My current projects include archival storage systems, scalable file system indexing, file systems for next-generation storage technologies, file system security, and petabyte-scale storage systems. Other interests include storage system benchmarks, algorithms to more efficiently manage storage, and information retrieval from very large text and multimedia corpora as well as other problems in computer systems and security. Please see my university home page for much more information about my research and other work-related activities.
I'm also a consultant on issues relating to storage systems, including advanced storage system research, storage system design and intellectual property & patents.
