2013 - ACM Fellow For contributions to operating systems and networking research.

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Operating system
  • Computer network
  • Programming language

Distributed computing, Overlay network, Computer network, Operating system and The Internet are his primary areas of study. His work deals with themes such as Query optimization, Logic programming and Prolog, which intersect with Distributed computing. His Overlay network study incorporates themes from Network architecture, Overlay, Programming language, Datalog and Declarative programming.

His research investigates the connection between Computer network and topics such as PlanetLab that intersect with issues in Testbed and Virtualization. As part of his studies on Operating system, he often connects relevant subjects like Multiplexing. His research in The Internet tackles topics such as Computer security which are related to areas like Wireless sensor network and Address space.

His most cited work include:

  • PlanetLab: an overlay testbed for broad-coverage services (947 citations)
  • Handling churn in a DHT (889 citations)
  • A blueprint for introducing disruptive technology into the Internet (763 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Timothy Roscoe focuses on Distributed computing, Operating system, Computer network, The Internet and Multi-core processor. His Distributed computing research incorporates elements of Overlay network, Scalability, Software deployment, Overlay and Dataflow. Timothy Roscoe usually deals with Overlay network and limits it to topics linked to PlanetLab and Testbed.

Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Hybrid kernel and Operating system. The various areas that Timothy Roscoe examines in his The Internet study include Computer security and Network architecture. His Multi-core processor research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Software and Embedded system.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Distributed computing (37.86%)
  • Operating system (22.86%)
  • Computer network (13.57%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2020)?

  • Distributed computing (37.86%)
  • Dataflow (7.86%)
  • Memory management (6.43%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His main research concerns Distributed computing, Dataflow, Memory management, Embedded system and Operating system. His work in the fields of Distributed computing, such as Stream processing, intersects with other areas such as Memory systems. His research integrates issues of Address space, Non-volatile memory and Virtual address space in his study of Memory management.

His work carried out in the field of Embedded system brings together such families of science as Process and Multi-core processor. When carried out as part of a general Operating system research project, his work on Kernel preemption, Linux kernel, Process control block and Mobile computing is frequently linked to work in Process management, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. The Graph study combines topics in areas such as Exploit, Network model and Computer network.

Between 2014 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Off by Default (91 citations)
  • Arrakis: The Operating System Is the Control Plane (52 citations)
  • SpaceJMP: Programming with Multiple Virtual Address Spaces (27 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Operating system
  • Computer network
  • Programming language

Timothy Roscoe spends much of his time researching Distributed computing, Implementation, Dataflow, Theoretical computer science and Thread. Timothy Roscoe interconnects Variety, Multi-core processor and Task in the investigation of issues within Distributed computing. His Implementation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Fork and Programmer.

His research integrates issues of Convergence, Process and Stream processing in his study of Dataflow. His Theoretical computer science research focuses on Human–computer interaction and how it relates to Physical address, Flat memory model, Virtual address space and Logical address. His Memory map research is under the purview of Operating system.
