@mort___ | Attendee Directory Profile

Richard Mortier is Horizon Transitional Fellow in Computer Science at the University of Nottingham. His research focuses on user-centred systems, investigating the challenges that arise when we design and deploy infrastructure technology with which real people must interact. Specific current projects include exokernels for secure high-performance multiscale computing (Mirage); infrastructure for building a market around privacy-preserving third-party access to personal data (Dataware); and novel approaches to deploying and managing personal network services. Prior to joining Nottingham he spent two years as a founder of Vipadia Limited designing and building the Clackpoint and Karaka real-time communications services (acquired by Voxeo Corp.), six years as a researcher with Microsoft Research Cambridge, and seven months as a visitor at Sprint ATL, CA. He received a Ph.D. from the Systems Research Group at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory, and a B.A. in Mathematics, also from the University of Cambridge.

Mirage is a new operating system for the cloud which compiles source code in a functional language (OCaml) into type-safe microkernels that run directly on the public cloud. The compiler specialises appliances such as a web server or database into hundreds of kilobytes, marking a radical shift in how we can manage online services that are always struggling with security isusues.
