Shaya Potter's Home Page

I've finally managed to knock out a simple html page in vi. Hopefully over time I'll learn more html and will be able to improve this page.

I've sucessfully completed my Ph.D. at Columbia University. I worked with Jason Nieh of the Network Computing Lab.

My research at Columbia has included creating secure and migrtatable Linux Virtual Machines. (WebPod, DeskPod, AutoPod), improving the ability of administrators to manage machines (AutoPod, Strata, ISE-T) and improving the security of server and desktop applications (PeaPod, Apiary).

In May 2001, I graduated with a BA in Computer Science from Yeshiva University.

In October 2003, I graduated with an MS in Computer Science from Columbia University

In August 2009, I will be defending my dissertation on how we can leverage operating system virtualization to solve problems in mobility, security and system administration

In the summer of 2001, I worked on IBM's Linux Watch Project while working for IBM Research at the T.J. Watson Research Center

During the Summer of 2000 I had the honor of participating in IBM's Internship program, Extreme Blue.
