I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science department at VU Amsterdam. I also have a part-time appointment at TU/e.

Before joining the VU, I was Principal Researcher at the Virtual Machine Research Group in Oracle Labs, and a member of the GraalVM team.

Broadly speaking, I work on Programming Languages and Software systems. I am especially intererested in all interactions between language VMs and Cloud runtimes (e.g., Node.js), or Data processing systems (e.g., Spark).

I hold a Ph.D. from USI Lugano. I did research internships at Mozilla Research and Oracle Labs, and have been a guest of the SSW institute of JKU Linz. Before that, I earned a M.Sc. at the University of Pisa working on high-performance streaming systems.
