Almost everything that we do today is computing driven, with most of the data processing done in the cloud. Yet computing takes heavy toll on the environment, with data centres consuming over 200TWh/year. The student will be part of a research group exploring aspects of computing infrastructure, such as sustainability, scalability and resilience. The details of any DPhil project would be defined in discussion with the student, but are likely to explore new approaches to sustainable computing, or the resilience of digital infrastructure to the effects of global warming. The research will likely involve aspects of e-Infrastructure modelling, simulations.
