Jiajun Cao


I am a PhD student in College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern University.
Before coming here, I worked at Baidu, Inc. from 2011 to 2012.
I received my BS from Beihang University in 2011.

Research Interests

I'm interested in High Perfomance Computing and Operating Systems. Specifically, fault-tolerance has been playing an important role in the HPC area,
since hardware/software failure is more likely to happen when the system scales. In the meantime, system architecture and APIs are developing rapidly.
Hence, a general fault-tolerance solution has become an interesting research topic. My research project DMTCP (Distributed MultiThreaded CheckPointing)
is a transparent checkpoint/restart package that supports fault-tolerance for large-scale distributed computation, with no modification to the operating system,
or to the user application.

Currently I'm working with Prof. Gene Cooperman in the High Performance Computing Lab.
