Biography

Gabor Kecskemeti (M.Sc., University of Miskolc, 2004; Ph.D., University of Westminster, 2011) is a Lecturer within the Department of Computer Science at Liverpool John Moores University.

Between 2006-2016, he worked as a research fellow at the Laboratory of Parallel and Distributed Systems (LPDS) of MTA SZTAKI and in parallel he also worked as an assistant lecturer at the University of Miskolc. In, 2013, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Innsbruck, Austria. He has got involved in several successful Grid and SOA research projects (e.g., ePerSpace, EDGeS, S-Cube) funded by the EU. Recently, in 2015 and early 2016, he was steering committee member and work package leader in the ENTICE project (focusing on cloud computing) which was financed by the EU’s Horizon2020 framework programme. He coordinated the Cloud research sub-group of LPDS in 2011–2012.

He was member/chair of the program committees of over 30 European conferences/workshops. He was guest editor for the Journal of Grid Computing for a special issue on Cloud federations and he also edited the book titled "Developing Interoperable and Federated Cloud Architecture". He has published over 60 scientific papers (incl. 12 journal articles and 4 edited volumes) about cloud and grid computing, particularly from the fields of simulating distributed systems and virtual appliance delivery in IaaS clouds.
