Systems Software Research Group


SSRG Word Cloud Welcome to the homepage of the Systems Software Research Group in the Bradley Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech. The group's general research areas include operating systems, concurrency, distributed systems, real-time systems, virtualization, run-times, compilers, and middleware. A cross-cutting goal is to understand how to build software systems -- broadly defined -- that are scalable, efficient, and reliable. Ongoing projects include transactional memory for multicores and distributed systems, scalable operating systems for multicores, automated concurrency refactoring, and real-time virtualization.


Our new postdocs: Giuliano Losa, Pierre Olivier, and Sandeep Hans

Giuliano Losa is joining SSRG as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in August. Giuliano's research focus is on distributed computing, with a particular emphasis on theory, system building, and formal modeling and analysis. Welcome Giuliano!

Pierre Olivier joins us as a Postdoc in September. Pierre's research focus is on operating systems (especially Linux!), storage and embedded storage, simulation, and performance evaluation. Welcome Pierre!

Sandeep Hans joins us as a Postdoc in September. Sandeep's research focus is on concurrency and synchronization, with a particular focus on transactional memory. Welcome Sandeep!
