I am a PhD student at the Technical University of Munich, supervised by Prof. Pramod Bhatotia at the Chair of Decentralized Systems Engineering. I am interested in the broad area of systems research with a special focus on operating systems, distributed systems and emerging hardware architectures. The central theme of my current work is to employ a hardware-software co-design approach to ensure high-performance, security and reliability.
