I’m an Assistant Professor at IST Austria.
Before IST, I was a visitor at ETH Zurich, and a Researcher at Microsoft Research, Cambridge, UK. Prior to that, I was a Postdoctoral Associate at MIT CSAIL, working with Prof. Nir ShavitI received my PhD from the EPFL, under the guidance of Prof. Rachid Guerraoui

My research focuses on concurrent data structures and distributed algorithms, and spans from algorithms and lower bounds, to practical implementations.
