Dr Natalia Chechina
I am a Research Fellow working at the University of Glasgow with Professor Phil Trinder. I am part of the Glasgow Systems Section (GLASS) and Glasgow Parallelism Group (GPG) in the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow.
I am currently working on:
From October 2011 until February 2015 I worked in the RELEASE project which aims to improve the scalability of Erlang programming language - aiming to scale it out to systems with a million cores (maybe 10 000 Erlang nodes). I led Scalable Distributed Erlang work package (WP3) working at the language level. We have implemented Scalable Distributed Erlang (SD Erlang) to improve the scalability of Distributed Erlang.
Research InterestsScaling distributed computation, distributed robotics, parallel programming, Erlang, stochastic modelling, autonomous systems, and overlay networks.
Short BiographyNatalia Chechina received the Engineer degree from Kyrgyz State Technical University, Kyrgyzstan in 2008, and a PhD degree from Heriot-Watt University, UK in 2011. While doing her PhD she also did a six month industrial internship in MaidSafe Ltd. Between 2011 and 2015 she worked as a Research Associate at the University of Glasgow in the RELEASE project (A High-Level Paradigm for Reliable Large-Scale Server Software) sponsored by an EU FP7 STREP (287510). She is now a Research Fellow at the University of Glasgow. Her main research interest is scaling distributed computation on commodity hardware.
