... news: As of November 2005, look for me at the Department of Computer Sciences of Purdue University.


... myself: I received a Masters degree in 1998, and a PhD Degree (Dr čs sc.) in late 2001, both from the School of Computer and Communication Sciences of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). After having spent a short time in beautiful Göteborg, at the Computer Science Department of Chalmers University of Technology, I returned to EPFL in 2002 as a postdoctoral researcher. 2004-2005 I have been mainly working for Sun Microsystems as a software architect. Currently I'm a research associate and lecturer at the Chair of Software Engineering of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich (ETHZ). My CV.


... I am or have been recently involved in:


... can be found on this page.


... topics which best describe my current interests:

Anything around

  • (fault-tolerant) algorithms
  • (object-oriented) programming languages and abstractions
  • middleware and information systems
  • software engineering

specifically related to distributed settings.


... I'm currently involved in:

  • My primary focus is the SCOOP (Simple Concurrent Object-Oriented Programming) project. SCOOP is a simple yet very powerful mechanism for concurrent computation. I am working mainly on distribution-related issues.
