Lucian Trestioreanu joined the DTU-SP2 program in March 2019. He received his Master’s degree in Computer Science, from the University of Luxembourg, in 2018. His research work focuses on networking and aims to develop approaches for data path driven security monitoring using DPDK and data plane programability. In the context of ever increasing demand for lower latency data transfer services, his Phd will cover the topics of DPDK and network programability for low latency networks. Lucian joined the Service and Data Management in Distributed Systems research group, SEDAN, headed by Dr Habil. Radu State and he will be advised by the latter.
