About Geoff Kuenning
Geoff Kuenning is a professor of
computer science at
Harvey Mudd College.
Prior to joining Harvey Mudd, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher
FMG research project
at UCLA, where he also received his Ph.D.
Before entering UCLA, he worked
as a software consultant and computer programmer.
Geoff's current research is concentrated primarily in the area of file
systems. His most visible project is the
SNIA IOTTA Trace Repository, a
compendium of trace data used by file systems researchers worldwide.
He also studies techniques for tracing and modeling file systems,
and deduplication techniques for file systems. More information about
his current research can be found on his publications page.
In earlier work, Geoff was involved in the development of a
study of file
size distributions, and a system for
detecting insider misbehavior by observing file access patterns.
Before that, he built the
predictive hoarding system, which allows mobile users to ensure that
they will have the files they need to work while disconnected.
The success of SEER demonstrated that prediction is possible and can
have a significant impact on computer systems.
Some of the SEER work has been applied to Geoff's more recent
research, as well as influencing researchers at other institutions.
