Connecting researchers, students, and engineers is the most important part of our mission at Red Hat Research. Here’s a partial list of the folks we work with—click through for the projects and papers that have resulted.
Jason Anderson is the DevOps Lead for Chameleon, a large-scale, deeply reconfigurable experimental platform built to support Computer Sciences systems research. He leads day-to-day operations and future development on the OpenStack-based distributed deployment of Chameleon, which is currently running at multiple national research laboratories and host institutions.
Ilya Baldin leads RENCI’s network research and infrastructure group (NRIG). He is a networking researcher with a wide range of interests, including high-speed optical network architectures, cross-layer interactions, novel signaling schemes, and network security.
Mercè Crosas is the University Research Data Management Officer, with Harvard University Information Technology (HUIT), and Chief Data Science and Technology Officer at Harvard’s Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS). Before re-joining Harvard in 2004, Dr. Crosas worked for six years in the educational software and biotech industries, initially as a software developer, and subsequently as director of the software development team.
As the Director of Engineering and Product, Michael is deeply involved in all aspects of development, operations and research in the Massachusetts Open Cloud. He also teaches parts of BU's EC500 Cloud Computing class.
Bandan Das is a software developer in the Virtualization group at Red Hat Collaboratory, working on the Linux kernel and the accompanying user-space component, Qemu, enabling and fixing various aspects of Linux Virtualization.
Peter Desnoyers is an Associate Professor in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences, which he joined in 2008. He is one of the founders of the Massachusetts Open Cloud, a multi-institutional collaboration to develop new models for cloud computing, and serves on the steering committee. His research is focused on storage issues in operating systems and the cloud, with a particular focus on log-structured systems such as flash and SMR translation layers and novel uses of object storage.
Ulrich Drepper is a Distinguished Engineer at Red Hat. He is part of the office of the CTO and concentrates on developing new technologies for high-performance computing (and machine learning specifically), mostly in collaboration with university groups.
Abhimanyu (Manu) Gosain is a Senior Director for Institute of Wireless Internet of Things at Northeastern University, Executive Director for Open6G,co-Chair for the FCC 6G Technology Advisory Council and Senior Advisor for NTIA and DoD OUSD R&E.
Martin Herbordt is Professor of ECE at BU where he directs the Computer Architecture and Automated Design Lab. He and his group have worked for many years in Computer Systems and especially computer architecture and High Performance Computing (HPC).
James is a researcher at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. He works on machine learning and statistical methods for broad problems in quantitative social science, such as privacy preservation, missing data, measurement error and human-guided machine learning.
Andy Huynh is an IBM Fellow and a graduate student at Boston University who is also working with Red Hat. His Red Hat advisor is Josh Berkus. His research interest are in machine learning, data mining, and high performance computing
David leads the Sustainable Computing Lab, which conducts experimental computer systems research in the areas of cloud computing, Internet-of-Things (IoT), and cyber-physical systems, with a particular emphasis on applications to sustainability and energy efficiency.
Frederick Jansen is the CTO at Nth Party, a company that builds and deploys next-generation privacy-enhancing solutions. Prior to co-founding Nth Party, Frederick worked as Associate Director of Engineering and Interim Director of the Software and Application Innovation Lab (SAIL) at Boston University.
Research Scientist at UC Santa Cruz, Incubator Fellow at the UC Santa Cruz Center for Research on Open Source Software (CROSS); Adjunct Professor at University of Sonora. Interested in large-scale distributed data management systems, applied aspects of data science, and reproducibility
Orran Krieger is the Co-Director of the BU Red Hat Collaboratory at the Hariri Institute for Computing, where he co-leads the Mass Open Cloud project. He is also a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boston University.
Amin is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boston University advised by Prof. Orran Krieger. He is a member of the Systems Research Group and he is associated with Mass Open Cloud (MOC).
Marziyeh Nourian is a Ph.D. student at North Carolina State University working with Dr. Michela Becchi. Her research has been focused on hardware-software co-design for high-performance computing, specifically targeting large-scale pattern matching and data transformation applications. Her research interests include parallel computing, heterogeneous, and reconfigurable architecture.
Ali Raza is a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at Boston University, working with Professor Orran Krieger. His area of interest is Operating Systems, specifically turning the Linux kernel into a unikernel.
Kate Saenko is a faculty member at Boston University and a consulting professor at the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab. She leads the Computer Vision and Learning Group at BU and is the founder and co-director of the Artificial Intelligence Research (AIR) initiative.
Sahil Tikale is a PhD candidate in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boston University co-advised by Prof. Orran Krieger, Prof. Larry Rudolph, Prof. David Starobinsky and Prof. Peter Desnoyers. He is broadly interested in design, building and evaluation of cloud-scale systems.
Red Hat Research connects Red Hat engineers with professors, researchers, and students to bring great research ideas into open source communities. Our activities around the world have produced grants from government and industry, papers at top conferences, and results that have landed in open source projects of all kinds. Red Hat Research welcomes participation from research-minded individuals around the world.
