I am a researcher at the cloud storage group at IBM's Haifa Labs. My research interests include various topics like: databases, security and analytics, especially in a cloud setting. I am interested in open source distributed systems such as MongoDB, RocksDB, Spark, Alluxio, Kafka and many more.   
My current research project is about Storage Class Memory (also known as NVM), a new fast storage tier, and its influence on applications such as Databases, analytics and real-time applications. In this research, we deal with various challenges such as performance, security, recovery and deduplication.
