Research Description

Professor Kemme's general research interests lie in the design and development of distributed information systems with a special emphasis on data consistency.

Some of Prof. Kemme's research projects look at adaptability issues in multi-tier architectures. The idea is to replicate the various components in such an architecture to achieve fault-tolerance and scalability. If one replica fails, others can take over the load, load is distributed among the replicas and by adding new replicas the system can handle more load. However, coordinating the replicas of one tier, and coordinating the different tiers in such an environment requires sophisticated replica control mechanisms.

Prof. Kemme is also interested in XML data management, in particular, concurrency control issues, and in data management support for massively multiplayer games.
