About Me

I am a senior researcher in the Computer Systems Laboratory (CSL) at the SICS Swedish ICT. I got my PhD from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden in June 2013. My research interests include distributed systems, data intensive computing, data mining, gossip-based algorithms, and P2P systems. I've been also teaching a number of courses on distributed systems, data intensive computing and operating systems.
