I am a tenure-track faculty member at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems (MPI-SWS), where I lead the operating systems research group. I also serve in an adjunct faculty role at the Chair of Decentralized Systems Engineering at TU Munich.

My research centers on the interplay of software and hardware in post-Moore systems — specialized systems comprising tightly integrated and co-designed hardware and software components.

Before joining the tenure-track faculty, I was a research group leader at MPI-SWS for three years. Prior to joining MPI-SWS in August 2018, I obtained my PhD from the Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. At UW I was part of the systems lab with Tom Anderson, Arvind Krishnamurthy, and Simon Peter (at UT Austin) as my advisors. My research career started at ETH Zürich, where I had the opportunity to do research in the Systems Group with Mothy Roscoe during my Bachelor and Master studies.
