USRC Students and Postdocs

Michael Carlton,

Undergraduate Student, Computer Engineering and Computer Science, University of Kentucky
Michael Carlton is an undergraduate with a dual major in Computer Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Kentucky. This summer at LANL he worked with his mentors, Nathan DeBardeleben and Sean Blanchard, to develop a new method for handling memory hardware errors. This project was a success and will hopefully be utilized in the near future on production machines. Michael recently returned to college to begin his senior year and will be working as both a Teaching Assistant and Resident Advisor during the academic year.

Daniel Campello,

PhD Student Computing & Info Sciences, Florida International University

Daniel is a Venezuelan student in the School of Computing and Information Sciences of Florida International University. He has been there since August 2010 to pursue his PhD degree and has been working on research projects in Operating Systems, specifically in Storage Systems. He also works as a Research Assistant in the Computing Department. His undergraduate degree is in Computer Engineering, and he obtained it in the Universidad Simon Bolivar located in Caracas - Venezuela, where he also worked as a System Administrator of the entire CS network. Daniel is currently working on the project "SoftPM: Software Persistent Memory", inspired by converting memory structures in persistent structures living in different types of storage media, all of this in a manner transparent to the developer. 

Daniel's work at USRC was to extend the SoftPM work for parallel computing and to examine the research challenges therein.

Michael Albrecht,

PhD Student, University of Notre Dame

Michael Albrecht is a Ph.D. student at the University of Notre Dame and part of the ND Cooperative Computing Lab. His primary research area is in distributed systems, with a focus on distributed storage, data-aware computing, and active storage.

Michael developed and tested the feasibility of a hierarchical data and workflow manager for exascale supercomputing to deal with both data-intensive computing as well as simulation checkpointing and restart.

Hakan Akkan,

PhD Student Computer Science, New Mexico Tech

Visit Homepage
I received my B.E. in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering from Middle East Technical University, Turkey. I then received a M.S. in Computer Science from New Mexico Tech where I am currently pursuing a doctoral degree in the same program. My earlier research was focused on web technologies and cloud computing specialized in access control in those environments.

At the USRC, I am investigating OS and system software scalability for exascale computing.
