I'm a 6th-year PhD student in the Scalable Parallel Computing Lab (SPCL) at ETH Zurich. I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Torsten Hoefler and to be a part of the rich and vibrant SPCL and ETH research environments.

My research interests focus on understanding and accelerating large-scale irregular [graph] processing in any types of settings and workloads. I approach this problem holistically at different abstraction levels, including (1) hardware, (2) network topologies, (3) the OS and runtime / middleware, (4) algorithms, and (5) programming models.

The common effort in all these efforts is to understand better the underlying fundamental properties of a given problem, system, phenomenon, or solution. This is done with performance modeling or any other formal way of describing a [given subspace] of reality.

Prior to coming to ETH, I spent several years at CERN in Geneva. Among others, I developed an event display system for the TOTEM Experiment in the Large Hadron Collider. My stay at CERN resulted in my master thesis obtained from the AGH University of Science and Technology in Poland.
