Biography

Natalia Chechina is a Lecturer in Computing in the Department of Computing & Informatics at Bournemouth University. Her research investigates approaches and techniques to enable scaling and efficient performance on commodity hardware where components are loosely coupled, communication is significant, and any of the components may fail or disconnect at any time.

She is a regular reviewer of research projects for various UK and international funders including UK EPSRC and Polish NCN, journal articles in the area of distributed computing including Elsevier JPDC, and international conferences. In 2018 Natalia is a co-chair of the ACM SIGPLAN Erlang Workshop 2018, and a PC member of TFP'18 and IFL'18. She is also a regular speaker at various industrial conferences, such as BuildStuff, QCon, NDC, Erlang Factory Lite, Erlang User Conference.

Natalia received her PhD from Heriot-Watt University, UK in 2011. She then worked as a Research Associate and Research Fellow at Heriot-Watt University (2011-13) and Glasgow University (2013-17).

Research

My research investigates approaches and techniques to enable scaling and efficient performance on commodity hardware where components are loosely coupled, communication is significant, and any of the components may fail or disconnect at any time.

Topics of interest include scaling distributed computation, distributed robotics, concurrent and parallel programming, Erlang, stochastic modelling, autonomous systems, and overlay networks.
