@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.

If you want to run your own Internet node, it requires gluing together an awful lot of software, and maintaining it. We'll show you a fresh approach: use the Mirage operating system to easily compile the protocols you need (DNS, HTTP, XMPP and IMAP) for your Internet presence into a type-safe unikernel, and deploy the whole thing using just Travis CI and Git directly on the cloud or on ARM.
