WELCOME,

     I'm a database researcher and love working on challenging real world problems. Currently I work with the Human Brain Project for managing brain simulation data.

      My research focuses on designing scalable multi-dimensional data access methods, particularly for spatio-temporal workloads. I'm also working on projects related to distributed joins, time series compression and graph processing. 

     I'm a Ph.D. candidate about to graduate (March 2014) from EPFL Switzerland. Supervised by Prof. Anastasia Ailamaki (DIAS) and co-supervised by Prof. Henry MarkramI'm applying for full time positions. Download my resume below:
