My areas of interest include distributed systems, security, data replication, weak consistency models, fault tolerance and dependability.
This is my master’s thesis: a new proposed standard for a database benchmark specifically targeting NoSQL data stores. Despite some existing synthetic benchmarks for these types of storage systems being extremely popular (YCSB), our benchmark is based on an real application, FMK, which is responsible for managing nation wide medical prescriptions for patients in Denmark.

Working for the community version of Riak, I am reworking a key component in running all sorts of tests for the Riak database. Basho1 reinvented the wheel by building a custom test runner facility along with other tools to measure code coverage that were already were available as standard tools in Erlang. My task is to take the Riak test suites that are tightly coupled with the custom test runner and make them work with the standard Erlang tools for running intricate tests (Common Test).
