I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Cloud & Computing Infrastructure department of IBM Research Zurich. I am a member of the Accelerator Technologies group focusing on re-configurable computing for workload optimized and self-aware systems. My primary project is hardware accelerated Text Analytics using FPGAs attached to POWER8 via CAPI.
I recieved my Dipl.-Ing. and PhD degrees in electrical engineering and information technology from the Technische Universitaet Muenchen, Munich, Germany.
