I am a Research Scientist at IBM Austin Research Lab [link to my IBM homepage] and an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Texas at Austin.
My research interests revolve around systems and programming languages. I am currently working on building optimized systems, e.g., exploiting coherently attached accelerators on the Power8 platform, and on enhancing language runtime systems like the JVM.
Prior to joining IBM Research, I got my MSc and PhD in the Systems Group [link] at the Department of Computer Science [link] ETH Zurich [link]. My advisors were Prof. Gustavo Alonso and Prof. Timothy Roscoe.
