I am an assistant professor at the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) and a Research Scientist at Barefoot Networks. Prior to joining USI, I was a post-doc at Cornell University, working with Nate Foster. I received my B.A. from Brown University, and my Ph.D. from NYU, where I was co-advised by Robert Grimm and Martin Hirzel (IBM Research). Concurrent with my Ph.D. studies, I was a research co-op in the Data Intensive Systems and Analytics Group at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center for two years.

Here is a video in which I drag the Father of the Internet across the floor, and one of the most prominent networking researchers in the world punches me in the gut.
