Bio/Description

A Research Staff Member of Advanced Operating Systems at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY, she received her M.Sc. in Computer Science, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1990; her B.Sc. in Computer Science, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1986; and her Ph.D. in Computer Science in 1997 from Georgia Institute of Technology. Her primary research interests are operating systems, distributed computing, and high-end computing. She was an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science at University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, from 1997 to 2000 and then she became a Research Staff Member of the Advanced Operating System Group at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, New York, becoming the Manager of the group in January 2007. While there she led the architecture and implementation of file system support on the K42 research operating system; made innovations on dynamic adaptation of operating system services; scalability; she was part of DARPA’s HPCS project and DOE’s FAST-OS project. She was a key contributor to the Commercial Software System Scale-out project. Her current projects are on virtualization, specialized execution environments, operating system issues in massive multicore processors, file systems, and cloud computing. Of her many publications, her most recent is: “RC2 - A Living Lab for Cloud Computing” with Glenn Ammons, Vasanth Bala, Stefan Berger, Jim Doran, Frank Franco, Alexei Karve, Herb Lee, James A. Lindeman, Ajay Mohindra, Bob Oesterlin, Giovanni Pacifici, Dimitrios Pendarakis, Darrell Reimer, Kyung Dong Ryu, Mariusz Sabath, Xiaol, IBM Research Technical Report RC24947, 2010. She has received numerous professional Honors and Awards, among which are the Research Productivity Award, March 1997 to September 2000, from the Brazilian Federal Research Agency (CNPq), and a Doctoral Fellowship, September 1990 to July 1994, from the Brazilian Federal Research Agency (CNPq). She was a guest editor for ACM SIGOPS Operating Systems Review, January 2008, on the Editorial Board of Journal of the Brazilian Computer Society, 2000-2004 and was Editor for the Special Issue on Adaptive Software Systems for the Journal of the Brazilian Computer Society. She was co-chair, SYSTOR 2010 (3rd Annual Haifa Experimental Systems Conference); co-chair, WSO 2010 (VII Brazilian Workshop in Operating Systems); vice-chair, SBAC-PAD 2009 (21st International Symposium on Computer Architecture and High Performance Computing); co-chair, SOSP Diversity Workshop 2009; and was international liaison co-chair for the Fourth Latin-American Symposium on Dependable Computing (LADC2009).
