Biography

I am currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Systems Group of TU Darmstadt. Furthermore, I started recently a new position as senior researcher at the SAIDE Lab of German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) led by Prof. Carsten Binnig.

In 2021, I completed my doctoral degree (officially, Dr.-Ing. or Doctor of Engineering) from TU Darmstadt with a thesis on Network-centric Complex Event Processing that was graded with summa cum laude. My thesis received the German national award for the Best Ph.D. thesis in the field of distributed systems by the special interest group on Communication and Distributed Systems (KuVS).

Currently in my research, I broadly focus on the intersection of systems and machine learning while at the same time leverage modern hardware and networks to their best.
