Biography

I am a Lecturer in Computer Systems in the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow, focusing on resource-efficient and resilient distributed computer systems.

Within the School, I am a member of the Glasgow Systems Section (GLASS) and part of the Glasgow Parallelism Group, the Low-Carbon and Sustainable Computing effort, and the Trustworthy Autonomous Systems theme.

Beyond the School, I co-lead the collaboration on Adaptive Resource Management with TU Berlin. Furthermore, I started the Distributed Systems Engineering Lab (diselab) with researchers from TU Berlin and HPI at the University of Potsdam.

Before joining the University of Glasgow, I was a guest professor in the Department of Computer Science at HU Berlin, substituting for Prof. Ulf Leser and lecturing on Data-Intensive Systems, and a senior researcher in the Distributed and Operating Systems group at TU Berlin, lecturing on Cloud Computing and on Distributed Systems. At TU Berlin, I also completed a postdoc and did my PhD under Prof. Odej Kao, working on dynamic resource allocation for distributed dataflow systems. Prior to that, I was part of the Software Architecture Group of Prof. Robert Hirschfeld and the Research School at HPI, and I worked at SAP Labs in Palo Alto, California, in the Technology Infrastructure Practice group, under Dan Ingalls, as well as at Signavio in Berlin.

More about me and my research can be found at https://lauritzthamsen.org/.

Research interests

I am keen on making computing more accessible and sustainable. To this end, I work on methods and tools that make it easier to create resource-efficient and resilient distributed computer systems, focusing especially on carbon-aware computing and data-intensive applications in edge/cloud infrastructures.

My research interests include:

  • Distributed Computer Systems
  • Edge and Cloud Computing
  • Carbon-Aware Computing
  • Adaptive Resource Management
  • Data-Intensive Systems
  • Software Development and Operation Tools

Grants

  • I contributed to over a dozen successful project grants under Prof. Odej Kao at TU Berlin as a postdoc and senior researcher:
    • I am currently still part of the DFG-funded research center FONDA and the DAAD-funded European teaching network ide3a.
    • Previously, I was involved in grant-funded projects in the research centers BIFOLD and BBDC (BMBF), the interdisciplinary projects WaterGridSense (BMBF), OPTIMA (EU Regional Development Fund), and Telemed5000 (BMWi), and the HEIBRiDS graduate school (Helmholtz Association).
    • I also helped acquire and lead an industry collaboration with Bundesdruckerei GmbH.
  • I am currently developing new research at the University of Glasgow and am looking for collaborators and partners.

Supervision

  • I am looking for PhD students to join me in Glasgow, where I recently started on a permanent academic post to set up a new lab on distributed computer systems.
  • I am currently part of the Thesis Advisory Committees of three PhD students in the context of the DFG Collaborative Research Center FONDA. I have also worked closely with PhD students at TU Berlin (in the Distributed and Operating Systems group of Prof. Odej Kao), HPI (in the Operating Systems and Middleware group of Prof. Andreas Polze), and HU Berlin (in the Knowledge Management in Bioinformatics group of Prof. Ulf Leser) as a postdoc and senior researcher at TU Berlin as well as a guest professor at HU Berlin.
  • I (co)-supervised over two dozen bachelor and master theses at TU Berlin, HPI, and HU Berlin over the last ten years. I have also (co-)supervised numerous semester-long student group projects at these institutions.
  • I supervised several final dissertation projects at the University of Glasgow since joining in 2022.

Teaching

I have been involved in teaching the basics of distributed systems, operating systems, and systems engineering as well as related advanced topics such as cloud computing and big data systems.

A full list of lectures, seminars, group projects, interdisciplinary courses, and extracurricular teaching can be found at https://lauritzthamsen.org/teaching/.

Additional information

You can usually find me in S 152 in the School's buildings (2nd floor, 15 Liliybank Gardens, yet entry to the School is through the Sir Alwyn Williams Building, 18 Lilybank Gardens).

Jointly with Richard McCreadie, I am coordinating the plagiarism cases in the School of Computing Science (SoCS Plagiarism Office).
