Dr. Lauritz Thamsen | TU Berlin | ARM | DOS | diselab
I am a postdoc researcher at TU Berlin, where I lead the work on Adaptive Resource Management (ARM) in the research group on Distributed and Operating Systems (DOS) and teach Cloud Computing. I am also a part of the diselab, an ongoing collaboration between researchers from TU Berlin and Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) on distributed systems engineering, and involved in the collaborative research centers BIFOLD and FONDA, the international teaching network ide3a, the interdisciplinary research projects WaterGridSense, OPTIMA, and Telemed5000, as well as the Data Science graduate school 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, California, on interactive programming systems in SAP's Technology Infrastructure Practice under Dan Ingalls and at Signavio in Berlin as a software engineer. Other successfully completed projects include research collaborations with Bundesdruckerei GmbH and Bedarra Research Labs.
My research is located at the intersection of distributed systems, operating systems, and software engineering, where I am generally passionate about systems research and making computing more accessible. More specifically, my 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 into easy-to-use, yet efficient distributed data processing on diverse large cluster infrastructures and dependable distributed systems in context of the Internet of Things.
