I am a member of sub-project B2 in the CRC 1053 (MAKI). This sub-project investigates the execution of multi-mechanisms in an end-to-end perspective under consideration of In-Network-Processing (INP). I  particularly conduct research in the field of resource management of cloud resources and applications. Cloud systems are large complex distributed systems characterized by heterogeneity, multi tenancy, geographical dispersion, and burstiness. Considering the mapping of resources and demands, there are fundamental tradeoffs between cluster utilization and application performance. Controlling these tradeoffs with respect to given requirements constitutes an interesting challenge.
