I'm a postdoctoral researcher at IBM Research Zurich, in the Cloud and Computing Infrastructure Department (Industry Platforms and Blockchain Group). Currently, my main focus is on the design of efficient and fair (byzantine) consensus protocols. Previously, I obtained a PhD from EPFL, in Lausanne, Switzerland, under the supervision of Prof. Rachid Guerraoui. While at EPFL, my research has addressed topcis such as concurrent (and durable) data structures and synchronization, as well as distributed protocols. During my PhD, I also spent time with VMware Research and Microsoft Research. I was a recipient of a Best Paper Award at the ACM Middleware Conference in 2014, and of a VMware academic fellowship in 2015-2016.
