Irina Calciu

I am a PhD candidate at Brown University, working with Maurice Herlihy (Brown University) and Justin Gottschlich (Intel Labs). Research interests: transactional memory, NUMA algorithms, lock free data structures and scalable synchronization methods in general. I got a M.Sc. in Computer Science from Brown in May 2011. Before coming to Brown, I got a B.Sc. in Computer Science from Jacobs University Bremen (Germany) and I did a semester abroad in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.

Thesis Committee: Maurice Herlihy, Justin Gottschlich, Rodrigo Fonseca.
