I am a Professor in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London. I lead the Large-Scale Data & Systems (LSDS) group that does research on scalable data-intensive software systems of any kind. I also act as the Director of Research for the Department.
Before coming to Imperial, I was a post-doctoral researcher in the Systems Research group at Harvard University. I received my Ph.D. degree from the University of Cambridge, after joining the Computer Laboratory as part of the Opera group. I was a graduate member of Queens' College and received a B.A. degree from Girton College.
