I am trying to find the causes for variance in the Mozilla Talos
performance test suite and ways to reduce it to make the tests more reliable.
MSc Thesis (2010-2011): Performance Analysis of Mozilla Firefox
, supervised by AlexPotanin
Study the sources of noise in performance tests (including comparing use of VMs), and develop techniques to reduce the noise. (Random noise in our performance measurements is a huge problem for

My masters is all about creating TPS reports aka Office Space
