Dr. Lauritz Thamsen | TU Berlin | ARM | diselab
I am a postdoctoral researcher at TU Berlin, where I lead the subgroup on Adaptive Resource Management (ARM) in the research group on Distributed and Operating Systems and teach Cloud Computing. I also started the diselab, an ongoing collaboration between researchers from TU Berlin and Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) focused on distributed systems engineering. I am furthermore a co-investigator with Odej Kao in the research centers BIFOLD and FONDA, a senior researcher and lecturer in ide3a, a sub-project lead in WaterGridSense and OPTIMA, as well as associated with Telemed5000 and HEIBRiDS.
I got my PhD from TU Berlin, working on adaptive resource management for distributed dataflows in the Berlin Big Data Center and the research project Stratosphere under Odej Kao. Prior to that, I was part of the Software Architecture Group of Robert Hirschfeld at HPI, the HPI Research School, and the HPI-Stanford Design Thinking Research Program. I also worked at SAP Labs in Palo Alto on interactive programming systems in SAP's Technology Infrastructure Practice under Dan Ingalls and at Signavio in Berlin as a software engineer.
I am into distributed systems, operating systems, and software engineering. I am a fan of systems research and generally passionate about making computing more accessible. My research interests include resource management and scheduling, dependable and adaptive distributed systems, cloud and fog computing, as well as distributed data processing. Currently, I am looking a lot at efficient processing on diverse cluster infrastructures and dependable processing of IoT sensor streams.
