I am a Researcher in the Cloud and Computing Infrastructure department at the IBM Zurich Research Lab. I am working on next-generation Flash-based storage systems, integration of Flash storage in modern datacenters, as well as future applications of other storage-class memories, such as Phase-Change Memory. I am also interested in distributed scale-out file-systems (GPFS, HDFS).
Previously, I have completed my Ph.D. at EPFL working in the DIAS laboratory under the supervision of prof. Anastasia Ailamaki. During my Ph.D. I have worked on integrating flash memory in the I/O stack of database systems (flash-aware algorithms, physical design, caching, data placement).
