Dr. Greg Bollella has been interested in algorithms and software architectures that support the deterministic execution of logic within general-purpose operating systems and virtual machines since 1992. At VMware he investigates real-time virtualization and Cloud Computing for The Internet-of-Things. While a Senior Engineer at IBM, he was fundamental to the industry effort that spurred the creation of the Java Community Process, established JSR-01, the first activity under the JCP, and led the JSR-01 Expert Group that defined the Real-Time Specification for Java. During his work on the Golden Gate project at Sun he concurrently held a Distinguished Visiting Scientist position for four years at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology. He holds a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His dissertation research is in real-time scheduling theory and real-time systems implementation. This work creates an architecture that defines fundamental issues that are necessary for supporting real-time applications within general-purpose operating systems and language runtimes.
