I am an assistant professor (tenure track) in the Department of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at ETH Zürich where I lead the Computer Security Group. I am generally interested in computer systems and security with a special focus on commodity hardware and operating systems.

Before joining ETH Zürich, I started the hardware security track at VUSec, first as a postdoc and later as an assistant professor. I received my PhD from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in 2015 for improving the scalability of cloud infrastructures. During my PhD, I interned twice with Microsoft Research, building rack-scale computers. I also hold an MSc from ETH Zürich and a BSc from Sharif University of Technology.
