Dr Matthew Grove
I am currently working a full time industry job with Rackspace Email.
Previosuly I was a research scientist within the Scalable Power, Performance, Efficiency Lab (SCAPE) in the Computer Science department at Virginia Tech. In parallel with that position I was a visiting research fellow within Centre for Advanced Computing and Emerging Technologies (ACET) which was part of the School of Systems Engineering at Reading University in the UK.
I lead the Anti-Abuse team at Rackspace Email. The Anti-Abuse team handles incoming and outgoing mail classification and prevents system abuse. They are responsible for maintaining the IP reputation of Rackspace Email and protecting the hosted mailboxes.
IO-Speed-Up. Investigating the effects of power management on workload performance at the kernel and micro benchmark level. Exploiting side effects of power management to improve IO performance.
DCT-NUMA. Optimal thread placement strategies for Non-Uniform-Memory-Architecture systems.
Iso-energy-efficiency. Scalable system power-performance modeling.
Virtual Research Environment for Archaeology (VERA). This project's goal was to produce a fully-fledged virtual research environment for the archaeological community. VERA was a two year project funded by the JISC as part of phase 2 of the Virtual Research Environments programme (project website).
Reading Environmental Sensor Network (RESN). RESN was a collaborative project between Computer Science and Soil Science departments of the University of Reading to provide a permanent public demonstrator for Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technologies (project website).
Tycho. A resource discovery framework and messaging system for distributed applications, originally created during the pursuit of my Ph.D at the University of Portsmouth. I actively developed it during my time at the University of Reading and I still continue to guide other researchers who now work on it (project website).
OGSA Testbed. A one-year project funded by EPSRC via the e-Science programme. The objective of the project was to install and test the middleware based on the Open Grid Services Architecture (OGSA), and then deploy a number of applications on the testbed. OGSA was Globus Toolkit version 3 (project website).
