I like hacking and building stuff. I am interested in improving engineering effectiveness, making systems run faster and be more secure and robust. I like to tinker with stuff and figure out why/how something works (or doesn’t).

I use shell, Python, Rust, R, Nix, Java, Scala, C/C++, Perl, Lua, SQL, and everything else needed to get the work done. I mostly develop for and on various UNIX systems. When I don’t do system engineering, distributed systems, data analysis, or visualizations, I explore Swiss mountains on my bike.

As of March 2021 I’m working again as a Performance Engineer at IMC, on network infrastructure and traffic analysis, system design and algorithms. Previously, I worked at:

My work career started at Cloud Security and Solutions group at IBM Research in Zurich, Switzerland. There, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher working on next generation storage systems (hardware), multi-cloud storage toolkit, data consistency and integrity protection algorithms, as well as on OpenStack performance.

I finished my PhD at EPFL in the Laboratory for Distributed Programming, under the supervision of Prof. Rachid Guerraoui.
