Alexander is a PhD student at Lancaster University focused primarily on the optimization of serverless applications and lightweight Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) constructed using specialized library Operating Systems known as Unikernels. His research focuses on the adaptability of specialization of Unikernels in the Data-Plane, particularly as the traditional OS concepts break down in the heterogeneous Data Center. In addition to this, he focuses on performance characteristics of Cloud-based applications, aiming to increase throughput, decrease latency through the use of automation and runtime-monitoring.
