Vijay Chidambaram

Assistant Professor
Vijay Chidambaram leads the UT Systems and Storage Lab. His group aims to build the next generation of storage systems. This means building storage systems that have higher performance and stronger reliability. His group builds both storage systems and the tools needed to develop such systems rigorously, such as testing frameworks. His group’s work involves innovation both at the data-structure level and at the systems level. They open-source all the software they build, and aim to have impact both inside academia and in industry.
