Brock Palen and Jeff Squyres speak with Gene Cooperman and Kapil Arya of Distributed MultiThreaded CheckPointing (DMTCP) a tool for kernel-modification-free, transparent user-space checkpoint and restart.
Gene Cooperman received his Ph.D. from Brown University in 1978 in Applied Mathematics. After some time in both industry and academia, he became an associate professor at Northeastern University in 1986, and a full professor in 1992. He has worked both in symbolic algebra and cluster computing and has over 80 refereed publications. His early work in cluster computing from the 1990s emphasized TOP-C (Task Oriented Parallel Computing).
