CERN Accelerating science

Tobias Kappé

Tobias Kappé is an MSc Computer Science student, currently studying at Leiden University in The Netherlands. His research interests include Theoretical Computer Science and Computer Systems. As a member of the system administration team of his student union, he is passionate about Linux system administration, learning a new trick every day. At CERN, Tobias is mainly concerned with exploring the performance of the EOS disk storage technology if parts of it were to use non-volatile RAM. This involves writing benchmarks and data structures amenable to a transactional implementation.
