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 his Bachelor and Master of Science (with honors) degrees in Computer Science from the Heinrich Heine University of Düsseldorf, Germany, in 2005 and 2009, respectively. From late 2007 to early 2009, he also worked as a student research assistant at the operating systems research group, where he has contributed to the checkpointing service of the XtreemOS grid operating system and the Kerrighed kernel-level checkpointer. From March to August 2009, he did a research internship in the Myriads project-team (former PARIS) at Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique, France, where he has worked on checkpointing and recovery of distributed scientific applications. In December 2009, he returned to the Myriads project-team and joined the Ph.D. program at the University of Rennes 1 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 at the Advanced Computing for Science department of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), USA, where he has investigated energy profiles of scientific data analysis applications. He defended his dissertation (with honors) in December 2012. His dissertation received the 2nd award of the Fondation Rennes 1. In February 2013, Eugen returned to the LBNL as a postdoctoral researcher in the framework of the Inria@SiliconValley program.
