Paweł T. Wojciechowski

I’m an Associate Professor affiliated to Institute of Computing Science, Poznan University of Technology, where I’m leading the Concurrent Systems Group.

My research interests include concurrency, distributed systems, replication, transactional memory, programming languages, and formal verification.

My last research project, called Persistent Datastore, funded by the Foundation for Polish Science, contributed new efficient Paxos-based replication algorithms with crash-recovery, nonblocking data structures with transactional operations, and several results in the theory of weakly-consistent distributed systems. We also experimented with persistent memory. Before I was a Principal Investigator of several projects funded by the National Science Centre and the Foundation for Polish Science. Before I worked at top universities in the UK and Switzerland (see my short bio for a brief summary).

Please contact me if you are interested in joint research projects, want to collaborate, or to obtain a PhD degree in computer science. For our graduates: why is it worth to do a MSc course or a PhD in Distributed and Cloud Computing (slides, in Polish)?

Short Bio

I joined the CS Institute at Poznan University of Technology in November, 2005. See my research interests, PhD students, Research projects, and Papers for further information.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in the School of Computer and Communication Sciences. I was co-author and principal investigator on the joint LSR (Distributed Systems) and LAMP (Programming Methods) labs project. The project delivered several contributions, e.g.: novel models, algorithms, and implementations of group communication protocols with support of both the crash-stop and crash-recovery models, and programming tools for modular protocol design with support of dynamic protocol update.

Before this, I was a researcher at the University of Cambridge. I was a member of the Theory and Semantics Group and the Opera (Distributed Systems) Group in the Computer Laboratory. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Cambridge. Within my Ph.D. project I have designed and implemented Nomadic Pict - a distributed, mobile agent programming language, that has a formal definition based on process calculi; it was one of the first such languages. Nomadic Pict has been used to design various infrastructure algorithms for location-independent communication of mobile agents.
