Christine Morin received the engineering degree in computer science from the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées (INSA), of Rennes (France), in 1987 and Master and PhD degrees in computer science from the University of Rennes I in 1987 and 1990, respectively. In 1998, she got the Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches in computer science from the Université de Rennes 1. She holds a senior research position at INRIA and leads the Myriads research team on the design and implementation of autonomous distributed systems. She is the coordinator of the Contrail project on cloud computing funded the European Commission. Her main research interests are in operating systems, distributed systems, fault tolerance, cluster, grid and cloud computing.
System architect and developer
Eugen received the Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Computer Science from the Heinrich Heine University of Düsseldorf (Germany), in 2008 and 2009, respectively. From late 2007 to early 2009, he worked as a student research assistant in the operating systems research group. From March to August 2009, he did a research internship in the Myriads INRIA project-team (Rennes, France). In December 2009, he joined the Ph.D. program at the University of Rennes 1 (France). He conducted his research in the Myriads INRIA project-team under the supervision of Dr. Christine Morin. His thesis focused on highly available and energy-efficient management of large-scale virtualized data centers. From July to September 2012, he did a research internship in the Advanced Computing for Science (ACS) department of the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL). He defended his dissertation in December 2012. The Snooze system is one of the core results of his work. His dissertation received the 2nd award of the Fondation Rennes 1. Since February 2013, he is a postdoctoral researcher at the LBNL and member of the Data Intensive Systems Group. His main research interests include distributed systems, cloud computing, big data management systems, resource management, virtualization, fault tolerance, high availability, and performance analysis.
