Reliable Distributed Storage Systems: My current research work focus software-defined storage architectures and very-large scale storage systems. As some examples, I am interested in storage deduplication (DEDIS), stackable filesystems, and storage security (SafeFS). I am also interested in applying machine learning techniques in order to automatically tune the performance and reliability of current systems.

Benchmarking Storage Systems: Another research interest is on building proper benchmarking tools for evaluating storage systems accurately (DEDISbench).

Databases: Also, previous and current research work focus SQL and NoSQL databases and privacy/security (MET, RED, SafeCloud).
