Welcome to my webpage! I am is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Laboratory for Advanced Software Systems (LASS), University of Massachusetts (UMass) Amherst, Manning College of Information & Computer Sciences, working with Prashant Shenoy. My primary research interests are about the performance, reliability, security, and sustainability of large-scale computing systems (e.g., edge/cloud computing).

I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science at TU Berlin. During my PhD, I closely worked with Odej Kao, Johan Tordsson, Erik Elmroth, and Guillaume Pierre . My Ph.D. dissertation focused on automatic performance diagnosis and recovery for cloud microservices.

In addition to my academic achievements, I also had industrial experience in IBM Cloud as a software developer and Site Reliability Engineer (SRE), in Elastisys as data scientist and in Bosch Research as a senior research scientist, researching on reliable distributed system for autonomous driving.
