Hi there!

I'm a senior data scientist at Swisscom, where I currently work on algorithms, models and software to extract mobility-related insights from millions of mobile phone trajectories. Before that, I was a PhD student at EPFL, with Prof. Patrick Thiran. My main technical interests revolve around algorithms (spatial/graph/networks), machine learning, probabilistic models -- and of course I like to write code. More generally, I enjoy designing solutions with a quantitative edge to relevant problems.

In 2012, I was a visiting researcher at Technicolor in Paris, where I worked on performance prediction for WiFi networks. In 2011, I worked at Deutsche Telekom T-Labs in Berlin, on the design of efficient and distributed spectrum allocation algorithms for wireless networks. Before that, in 2009, I went to work for my Msc thesis at Docomo Innovations in Palo Alto, on the design of scalable routing algorithms.
