Short CV

Vincent C. Emeakaroha is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Irish Centre for Cloud Computing with affiliation to University College Cork Ireland. Previously, he was a research assistant at the Distributed Systems Group, Information Systems Institute, Vienna Unniversity of Technology (TU Wien). He received his bachelor degree in Computer Engineering in 2006 and gained double masters in Software Engineering & Internet Computing in 2008, and in Informatics Management in 2009 all from Vienna University of Technology. In 2012, he received his PhD in Computer Science with excellence. He has worked in different research projects over the years including the Foundations of Self-governing ICT Infrastructures (FoSII) project funded by the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF) and Holistic Energy Efficient Approach for the Management of Hybrid Clouds (HALEY) funded by the Vienna University of Technology Science Award. He participated in the European Commission's COST Action on Energy Efficient Large Scale Distributed System. In October 2010, he was a visiting researcher at the Technical University of Catalunya Barcelona Spain. His research areas of interest include resource management in large-scale distributed systems, service provisioning management, storage usage optimization, autonomic computing, energy efficiency in Clouds, SLA and QoS management.
