Andrzej Nowak is a staff researcher at CERN openlab - a
collaboration of CERN and industrial partners such as HP, Intel, Oracle and
Siemens. He holds a Master Engineer degree in Computer Science from the
Gdansk University of Technology, specializing in distributed applications
and internet systems. Andrzej's early research concerned operating systems
security, mobile systems security, and wireless technologies. During his
studies in 2005 and 2006, he worked at Intel, where he researched custom
performance optimizations of the Linux kernel and took part in developing
one of the first implementations of the IEEE 802.16 "WiMax Mobile" standard.
In January 2007, soon after obtaining his diploma, he joined openlab as a
Marie Curie Fellow sponsored by the European Commission. Andrzej's current
research is focused on performance tuning, parallelism and modern many-core
processor architectures. Another significant area of his work is the
teaching of these topics at courses both within and outside of CERN.
