[what RobL looks like]

Projects

I spend most of my time on high performance I/O. I am involved in several software projects at ANL:

These days I am less involved in PVFS: a parallel file system for linux clusters: www.pvfs.org. If you ask me a question about PVFS, I may not have the answer but I'll know exactly who does.

I organized the IASDS 2011 workshop: http://www.mcs.anl.gov/events/workshops/iasds11/.

I organized the IASDS 2010 workshop, held September 2010 in Crete as part of the Cluster 2010 conference. For more information please see http://www.mcs.anl.gov/events/workshops/iasds10/. Google can't seem to find the list of published papers. Go here: http://www.mcs.anl.gov/events/workshops/iasds10/agenda.php

Once in a while I will be asked to guest-lecture a class. Are you looking for the materials I used?
