About Me

I am a Research Staff Member (RSM) in the Cloud and Computing Infrastructure group at the IBM Research Lab, Zurich. Earlier in 2016, I graduated with a PhD from ETH, Zurich.

My primary research interests are in the area of high-performance networks and storage architectures, operating systems, and distributed systems. Currently I am investigating how to leverage high-performance network (e.g., 100 Gbps RoCE network) and storage (10+ GBps, e.g., NVMe flash) devices in modern open-source analytics stacks such as Apache Spark. These efforts are parts of the Crail project (

Occasionally, I put stuff on my technical blog about new learning and issues I am investigating. It can be reached here: (the old one: My github is at


Many of the projects that I am involved in, are open sourced :

 - Crail: Crail is an open source user-level I/O architecture for the Apache data processing ecosystem designed from ground up for high-performance storage and networking hardware,

- DiSNI: High-performance devices (e.g., RDMA, NVMeF, etc.) integration for Java (previosuly called jVerbs),

- DaRPC: High-performance RPC library for RDMA/Java built using DiSNI,

- SoftiWARP: A fully functional software RDMA device for Linux :
