Since spring 2014, I am a PhD student at the Systems Group at ETH Zurich under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Gustavo Alonso.

My field of research is in-network data processing using Reconfigurable Hardware, mainly field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The goal is to explore new use cases and applications where FPGAs can provide a significant benefit over less efficient x86-based systems. Most recently I worked on a TCP/IP network stack for Reconfigurable Hardware.

The following video gives you a glimpse at my work.
