Currently, I am supervising the Diploma Thesis of Safa Omri, working title Automated Selection and Tuning of Statistical Regression Techniques for Goal-driven Creation of Predictive Models.
Supervised Theses (in cooperation with IBM R&D, Germany):
 Kiana Rostami, Modellierung von Performanzinterferenz datenintensiver Anwendungen in virtualisierten Umgebungen am Beispiel IBM System z. Diploma thesis, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), 2014.
 Roland Reeb, Modellierung von virtualisierten Speicher-Systemen mit dem Palladio Component Model. Bachelor's thesis, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), 2014.
 Axel Busch, Workload Characterization for I/O Performance Analysis on IBM System z. Master's thesis, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), 2013.
 Kiana Rostami, Performance-Vorhersage von virtualisiertem Storage mit Warteschlangennetzen. Study thesis, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), 2012.
 Dominik Bruhn, Modeling and Experimental Analysis of Virtualized Storage Performance using IBM System z as Example. Diploma thesis, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), 2012.
I am/was involved in supervising students during multiple practical courses and seminars between the summer term 2011 and the current summer term 2014. The courses are/were, among others:
- Research Course Large-Scale System Analysis and Simulation
- Practical Course Qualität von Anwendungen auf Cloud-Großrechner IBM z10
- Practical Course Software Quality Engineering mit Eclipse
- Seminar Qualität virtualisierter Ressourcen
- Seminar Betriebliche Unternehmenssoftware und IBM System z
The goal of this thesis is to analyze the performance influence of data-intensive workloads running in virtual machines and to create a generic storage performance analysis model.
