Ph.D. Student and Research Assistant at Technical University Berlin mentored by Volker Markl, Tilmann Rabl, and Steffen Zeuch.

My research interests deal with designing and developing distributed data processing engines using modern hardware for scalable data management and machine learning. Currently, I am investigating distributed protocols for dealing with large distributed state in distributed stream processing engines.

Before joining TU Berlin and DFKI, I received my MSc degree from University of Salerno in collaboration with the Distributed and Parallel Systems Group, Innsbruck under supervision of Radu Prodan and Vittorio Scarano. I developed my Master's thesis while partecipating to an Erasmus+ program.
