Joseph (Joe) Izraelevitz

I am a Ph.D. candidate in computer science at the University of Rochester under the guidance of Prof. Michael Scott. My research explores the impact of nonvolatile memory (NVM) devices. These are new main memory devices that are expected to replace DRAM and yet, unlike DRAM, are nonvolatile (their contents survive power outages). My work investigates how to leverage this new persistent storage capability in the context of parallel programming, and is a step in realizing the potential of NVM, which promises faster databases for transaction processing, shorter checkpoints for high-performance computing, and a method for consistent computing for intermittently powered devices in the Internet of Things.

I am currently on the academic job market. You can find my application materials here: (CV), (research statement), (teaching statement).
