He is teaching and doing research in the broad field of computer networks, IT security, and software development. His special interest is on software defined networking, cloud computing, and big data.
Prior to joining FH Kufstein Tirol, he was a network research engineer at the California Institute of Technology in the US and at CERN in Geneva. Working in the USLHCNet group that operated a network between CERN and US research labs, his research and development focused on optimizing high speed wide area networks and big data transfers, in particular for the Large Hadron Collider, using Software Defined Networking.
Prior that, he was a research assistant at the Institute of Communications Technology at Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany. He had been dealing with performance analysis of communication networks using the mathematical framework of the stochastic network calculus, for instance to determine router buffer sizes, delay bounds, and fairness among multiple data flows.

Elvin Sindrilaru

Elvin Sindrilaru (CERN)

Elvin is a software engineer in the Data and Storage Services Group at CERN which is responsible for the management and long-term preservation of all data produced by the CERN physics experiments. He received a MSc. degree in Computer Science from Imperial College London in the field of High-Performance Computing. Elvin joined CERN as a research fellow in 2010 working on the ROOT Framework to improve wide-area network I/O performance. He is also involved in developments concerning error-correction codes and providing fault-tolerance to the main CERN disk-based storage system EOS. Another important area of interest for Elvin is providing the required scalability for multi-petabyte systems storing physics data while at the same time streamlining the development process by using container technologies.
