Roberto Palmieri

In Fall 2017, I will be joining the Computer Science and Engineering Department at Lehigh University as Assistant Professor. Currently, I am a Research Assistant Professor at Virginia Tech and I am associated with the Systems Software Research Group.

My research interests are focused on differentiated aspects of computing and service-oriented applications and platforms, spanning from theory to modeling, design and implementation. In such contexts, I work on the definition and implementation of frameworks and protocols for dependability in transactional systems, with special attention to systems based on Software and Hardware Transactional Memories. Proposing high performance transactional collections of objects is also a research direction I'm currently pursuing. I am also interested in the definition and validation of accurate performance models for components or sub-systems forming the core of transactional systems (e.g., DBMS, STM, HTM).

At SSRG, I lead the HyFlow project that is exploring transactions in a variety of settings: from multicores to clusters to geo-distributed architectures, and work very closely with several PhD, MS, and BS students.

I am also member of High Performance and Dependable Computing Systems group at "Sapienza" University of Rome.
