I am an assistant professor (tenured) in the Computer Architecture for Embedded Systems (CAES) group at the University of Twente (NL). Currently, I am serving as Guest Editor for ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems and ACM Transactions on Cyber-Physical Systems

My research interest is very broad, i.e., from algorithm down to compilation. Particularly, I focus on hardware-software co-design automation and bridge the gap between theory and practice in real-time system software. Outside the academic pursuits, I dedicate myself to mentorship in Google and ESA Space Summer of Code and open-source development, especially for RTEMS.
