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. While at CERN, I was lucky to be mentored by Dr. Hubert Niewiadomski. My stay at CERN resulted in my master thesis obtained from the AGH University of Science and Technology in Poland where I was fortunate to be advised by Prof. Ryszard Tadeusiewicz.
