Who am I?

Update (September 2013): I have recently joined the newly formed Computational Marketing Team in Groupon, Int. (Dublin, Ireland). You may contact me at cchapman [at]

Update (October 2011): I am no longer at UCL and have now joined the Dell Cloud Research and Development Center (Dublin, Ireland). You may contact me at Clovis_Chapman [at]

I am a research fellow in the Computer Science Department of University College London. I am working on the RESERVOIR (Resources and Virtualization without Barriers project) FP7 Project led by IBM where we are concerned with building an open and interoperable cloud computing infrastructure . You can read more about my work [ here ].

I recently obtained my PhD from University College London, where I examined the problem of scheduling in best-effort computational grids [ thesis ].

I also on occasion act as a software consultant in the areas of Web development, clouds and grids, and my C.V is available [ here ].
