About myself

I am a PhD student in Timothy Roscoe's group in the Systems Group at ETH Zurich.

See my Curriculum Vitæ for more information.

  • Strymon is a platform to run data center operations and monitoring. I am working on performance analysis of distributed dataflow applications and scaling mechanisms.
  • Barrelfish is a research operating system to explore multi- and many-core architectures using novel approaches from distributed systems. My research was in the field of scaling-out Barrelfish across many physical machines using low-latency interconnects.

Personal projects

  • columnar-rs is a Rust library to transparently convert row-based memory layouts into a columnar variant. This can yield a significant performance improvement due to better cache utilization and dense data.

See my Github profile for more projects.
