I am an Assistant Professor at EURECOM, Sophia Antipolis, and a Visiting Professor in the DIAS lab headed by Prof. Anastasia Ailamaki. Previously, I was a Visiting Researcher in the Systems and Networking group at Microsoft Research, Cambridge.
I got my doctoral degree in the summer of 2014 after speding 5 years as a Ph.D student working under the guidance of Prof. Andy Tanenbaum, at the Vrije Universiteit, on all things storage related. Before that, I did my Masters in Computer Engineering at the University of Florida and worked as a Software Development Engineer for a year in the Windows Performance Team at Microsoft.
My research focuses on solving data management problems that arise in storing and processing data on modern hardware. To this end, my work covers almost all layers of the hardware-software stack and spans several disciplines, including computer architecture, systems and networking, high-performance computing, programming languages, and data-intensive computing.
