Non-Volatile Systems Laboratory
 New Job 
In July 2013 I joined Microsoft Research. Please find my new website here: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/people/acaulfie/default.aspx
 
 Research Interests 
My research interests straddle the boundary between hardware and software, with a focus on optimizing the use of non-volatile storage technologies in high performance computing systems. I look for ways of improving the performance of computer systems using non-volatile storage technologies, co-designing hardware and software interfaces, and optimizing software stacks. My research includes both computer architecture and systems work, including storage system architecture design, hardware design and implementation, and operating system optimization.
I was one of the first students in the Non-Volatile Systems Laboratory
