I am a PhD candidate at Systems Group, ETH Zurich. My research is about making advanced analytics faster and efficient in terms of resource and power usage. To achieve this, I am designing specialized hardware performing inherently parallel and compute/data intensive tasks that a conventional CPU is not suitable for. My goal is to provide insights into how the evolution of hardware in the era of big data shall continue after the end of Moore's Law.

I am a former DAAD scholar and received my BSc and MSc degrees from KIT with distinction. Aside from pursuing my PhD, I occasionally work in industry, participate in engineering competitions and enjoy the Swiss Alps skiing.
