Job Description

I am a PhD student at the Software Languages Lab, which is part of the Computer Science Department of the Faculty of Sciences at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

Research Description

My research is focussed on improving the performance of Reactive Big Data applications by allowing developers to specify how operators in these applications are distributed over a cluster.  To this end, I am working on designing language abstractions that enable developers to implement custom distribution strategies for these operators.  I am prototyping these ideas in a domain-specific language called Skitter.  More information about this language can be found on this page.


My research output can be found here.
