I am postdoctoral fellow in the Network systems group at Simula Research Laboratory. I received my Candidatus scientiarum degree and my Doctor scientiarum degree in informatics in 2000 and 2007, respectively. Both degress from the Department of informatics at the University of Oslo. I am primarily a computer scientist by training, but I also have backgrounds in system administration, content management systems and software engineering. I am currently the leader of project Sunrise where we work closely with the industry in order to understand and design the network technology requirements for the next generation of supercomputers and advanced data centres. The project is jointly funded by Simula Research Laboratory and Oracle.
My current research and that of my PhD students is focused on high performance interconnects, in particular routing algorithms, congestion control, and dynamic networking. My broader research interests cover most aspects of interconnection networks and high performance computing, including topologies, fault-tolerance, quality of service, and network management. Our main research methods are simulations using OMNet++ and experiments on our InfiniBand cluster. For my latest research results please refer to the publication list.
