I am a Performance and Capacity Engineer on Facebook’s Infra Foundation team.  Prior to Facebook, I was a research staff member at HGST, a Western Digital Company. Prior to HGST, I was a postdoctoral researcher at NEC Labs America and the University of Twente in the Netherlands. I received my MSc degree in Computer Science from the Technical University of Braunschweig in Germany in 2004 and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Twente in 2009.

My research interests include computer architecture, storage systems, and green computer systems. I worked on various topics in these fields, such as timing analysis of embedded software and cache performance analysis for real-time systems. I investigated MEMS storage technology and optimized it for mobile energy-constrained systems, and my work on MEMS featured in many online and newspaper articles, such as eScience and Tubantia.
