I am a PhD candidate in the Computer Science Department at the University of Basel, and a member of the Computer Networks Research Group.

My current research interests are focused on Future Internet Network Architectures and novel routing protocols. See the ANA Project (Autonomic Network Architecture) web page. Regarding routing, I am more specifically interested in Greedy Routing Protocols and their possible applications in fututre networks.
