My main area of research these days is on thermal and energy management of the digital infrastructure. I have worked in a research environment focused on heat transfer from the chip to the chiller in the backdrop of using real IT equipment, which lead me to join RISE in the north of Sweden, were we have real data centers available for experiments as-a service opportunities. As a part-time senior academic in thermofluid mechanics at the University of Leeds, I have gained a lot of experience in thermal management both using air and liquid cooling, by both simulation and experiments.
We live in the information age and we must not lose sight of the fact that processing, storing and transmitting information, whether digital or not, will always cost energy, so please ask me about Landaeur's principle and the ideas of Feynman and others. Please do.
