I have started a three year position in IBM Research - Australia - based in Melbourne, where I manage a group of researchers in Predictive Resource Optimization. My main focus is Edge/Fabric for IoT applications but I am moving into Quantum Computing, and my group continues projects in renewable energy and weather. At the same time I continue my connection with U. Groningen in tools for biomarker discovery with mass spectrometry.
