I am a permanent Associate Professor of Software Engineering at Chalmers and University of Gothenburg, Sweden. I lead the Internet Computing and Emerging Technologies Lab (ICET-lab), a joint research group located at Chalmers, the University of Gothenburg, and University of Zurich. I hold a PhD degree from Vienna University of Technology (in business informatics, focussing on cost-aware service composition). My current research interests are software performance engineering, especially in a cloud computing context. My current research is funded by Chalmers through the ICT Area of Advance, VR, Vinnova, and the Wallenberg Autonomous Systems Program (WASP), and the Swiss National Science Foundation. I have published some 100 peer-reviewed publications on (micro-)services, cloud systems, and empirical software engineering, leading to an h-index of 32 as tracked by Google Scholar.
