About me

I am an AI scientist at Meta AI research in Menlo Park, California.

Originally from Berlin in Germany, I was a research graduate student and later teaching staff and research associate at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. As part of the Institute for Computing Systems Architecture (ICSA) I did systems research with Björn Franke and Hugh Leather among others. In 2023, I joined the Fundamental AI Research Team at Meta in California.

Research Interests

My research interests are in the field of systems optimization, especially in using machine learning techniques to optimize operating systems and compilers. These are a few things I have been working on:

  • Large Language Models to optimize code compilation
  • Autotuning of compilers
  • Energy efficient scheduling of kernels for heterogeneous systems
  • Optimizing energy efficiency of interactive mobile workloads
  • Fast instruction set simulation
