I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Storage Systems group at IBM Research Almaden which I joined in December 2016. Previously, I obtained a PhD degree from Imperial College London where I was supervised by Prof. Peter Pietzuch. I hold a MSc and BSc degree in Computer Science from Technical University Munich (TUM) where I worked under Prof. Alfons Kemper on P2P-based data management systems.
My research interests are broadly related to distributed systems for data management including scalability, performance, fault tolerance, and manageability aspects. During my PhD, I worked at the intersection of data-parallel frameworks (Spark, Flink, MapReduce) and the network to optimize, how these applications utilize networking resources under different conditions. As a member of the Storage Systems group at IBM Research I am investigating scalable storage solutions to store and navigate data at scale.
