I am a tenured Assistant Professor in the HPDC group in the Computer Systems section of the Department of Computer Science at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I am interested in building networked systems to meet real-time requirements while achieving (energy) efficiency for modern applications by exploiting emerging domain-specific hardware (e.g., programmable switches) and a converged design of computing and networking. More about my research can be found on the research page.

I am the recipient of a Google Research Scholar Award (2022) and an Athene Young Investigator Award of TU Darmstadt (2018). I am a Senior Member of IEEE and a Member of ACM. My Erdős number is 3 (Antonio Fernández Anta → Shmuel Zaks → Paul Erdős).

At VU Amsterdam, I am the coordinator of the MSc Computer Science (joint degree VU/UvA) track Computer Systems and Infrastructure and a member of the program committee for BSc Computer Science.

To VU students: In P2 I am teaching the MSc course Advanced Computer Networks (X_405082) focusing on cutting-edge topics in cloud networking and programmable networks. I am currently offering research projects for MSc/BSc theses on in-network computing with programmable network devices and systems for machine learning. Drop me an email if you are interested.
