I am a Senior Scientist at IBM Research AI in Zurich and I lead the activities around Efficient NLP for industry-grade applications. We build model architectures optimized for low latency inference.
My passion is providing efficient and cost-effective solutions for complex problems via innovative algorithmic design and highly optimized implementations. I enjoy squeezing instructions in CPU cycles, designing algorithms tailored for specific hardware and be part of hardware software co-design processes.
My experience ranges from low level network programming in the Linux kernel, to high-performance math programming using SIMD instructions, up to designing novel machine learning models. I wrote software to monitor very large scale distributed systems (20k+ nodes).
