Dr.-Ing. Carsten WeinholdTU Dresden
Dr. Carsten Weinhold received a Master's degree (Diplom) from TU Dresden in 2006. He conducted research in the area of microkernel-based operating systems and security architectures in several projects funded by the EU and the German Research Foundation. He defended his doctoral thesis at TU Dresden on the subject of reducing size and complexity of the security-critical codebase of file systems in 2014. The underlying principles of splitting operating system services into critical components (e.g., for security) and uncritical ones (for everything else) are now applied in the area of high-performance computing (HPC). The goal of this effort, conducted in the FFMK project, is to use these principle to isolate and improve performance and latency-critical subsystems of system software for large-scale HPC systems.
