sameer Fellowship:Sameer Kulkarni joined CleanSky ITN on March 1st, 2015. He was selected for the ESR5 fellowship and is investigating live data center migration across multiple data centers at University of Göttingen.

Bio: : I received Bachelor degree in Computer Science and Engineering from NIE, Mysore, India and Master degree in Computer Engineering from University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA. During my masters I performed directed research on topics in virtualization and cloud computing, compiling the literature surveys on “Virtualization – Challenges & Opportunities in Disaster Recovery and Security” and “Addressing Security, Reliability and Trust Management for Internet Cloud” and published a paper “Cloud Security with Virtualized Defense and Reputation based Trust Management” in IEEE International workshop on Security in cloud computing SCC’09. After my Master’s, I worked in multimedia systems team, designing and implementing several audio solutions for Qualcomm SOCs at Qualcomm, San Diego.

My current area of interests include Cloud Computing, Network Function Virtualization and Software Defined Networking. My favourite pastimes include listening to music, reading books and Gardening. I also enjoy playing and watching Chess, Tennis and Cricket.

What’s your motivation for doing your PhD, and why within CleanSky?
Inquisitiveness, deep fond interest in learning, teaching and desire to build my career and contribute in academia have been the motivation to pursue PhD. I found a great opportunity in CleanSky ESR5, PhD position at University of Gottingen, that greatly aligned with my research interests in Virtualization and Cloud computing. I’m glad to be part of CleanSky.C.
What is your goal after finishing your PhD?
After finishing my PhD, my goal is to seek a career in the fields of academics and research.
