I like hacking and building stuff. I am interested in making systems run faster, be more secure and robust. That is why I am working on secure distributed systems :-).
I use Perl, Java, C/C++, Python, Lua, Scheme, shell, and everything else needed to get the work done. Although I prefer Mac OS X for day-to-day use, I mostly develop for UNIX systems.
As of June 2012, I am working as a postdoctoral researcher at Cloud Security and Solutions group at IBM Research in Zurich, Switzerland. Previously, I finished my PhD at EPFL in the Laboratory for Distributed Programming, under the supervision of Prof. Rachid Guerraoui.
