I am a Research Staff Member at the Cloud & Computing Infrastructure department of IBM Research Zurich. I am a member of the Heterogeneous Cognitive Computing Systems group focusing on re-configurable computing for cloud-based cognitive systems and solutions. My primary goal is to make FPGAs more accessible to software engineers by creating high-level cloud-based interfaces to accelerated services.
I recieved my Dipl.-Ing. and PhD degrees in electrical engineering and information technology from the Technische Universitaet Muenchen, Munich, Germany, in 2008 and 2015 respectively. Since 2017 I am a senior member of the IEEE.
