Iulian Neamtiu is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at UCR. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Maryland at College Park in Summer 2008. As a Ph.D. student, he received a Dean's Fellowship Award from the College of Computer, Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of Maryland.

Iulian's research interests include programming languages, operating systems, and software engineering --- in particular dynamic software updating, software evolution, static and dynamic approaches to making software safe, available, secure and scalable. He is the principal developer of Ginseng, a dynamic software updating implementation for C programs. Ginseng is the first tool suite to support long-term updates to realistic, single- and multi-threaded C applications; it has been used to update popular open-source servers (including OpenSSH, Vsftpd, Memcached, and Icecast) with up to three years' worth of actual releases, without having to shut down and restart the server.

During his Ph.D. studies, Iulian was a summer intern at Microsoft Research and IBM Research. Prior to starting his Ph.D., he was a software design engineer at Nokia Networks R&D in Duesseldorf, Germany.

In his spare time, he enjoys photography, biking and hiking. You can visit his web page for more information.
