My research interests lie at the edge of data-mining, network monitoring and database technologies. I enjoy squeezing instructions in CPU cycles.
I am a co-author of several patents in the area of indexing and compression. I co-authored papers in top networking, databases, data-mining and machine learning conferences.
I got my PhD at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH) while working for IBM Research. I have been a senior researcher at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH)and affiliated with the Communication System Group.
Before joining IBM Research I have been a Senior Software Engineer in Red Hat working on the networking stack of the Linux Kernel. Also I had the pleasure to work for Endace in New Zealand.
