I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Telecommunications Circuits Laboratory of the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). Previously, I was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie postdoctoral fellow in the Machine Interlocks section at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN). I have also spent three months as a Graduate Technical Intern at Intel Labs in Hillsboro, USA. The research areas I am currently most interested and active in include efficient algorithms and hardware architectures for channel decoding, channel decoding on faulty hardware, full-duplex communications, and machine learning for communications.
