My main research areas are networking, storage, operating systems, and distributed systems. Broadly speaking, I am interested in the performance aspect of systems, spanning from multi-core CPUs to distributed environments. Currently, I am investigating how modern, programmable, high-performance devices (100+ Gbps network, NVMe/3DXP storage, etc.) can be leveraged in large-scale data-processing systems such as Spark, Tensorflow, serverless workloads. I am one of the founding contributors of the Apache Crail (Incubating) project.
Prior to joining VU, I was a Researcher at the IBM Research Lab, Zurich. I obtained my PhD and MSc in Computer Science at ETH Zurich.
Update: I am looking for talented research students who like to hack on distributed systems, operating systems, data-processing frameworks. Drop me an email if you are interested.
