My main research interest has been in computational architectures for numerical linear algebra and optimization algorithms. In particular, the design and use of custom computer architectures for efficiently implementing numerical optimization algorithms, and the design of custom optimization algorithms for reliable reduced precision implementations in embedded resource-constrained systems.

Have a look at my publications for more details.

My doctoral thesis can be downloaded here.


I am the co-founder of the ETH spin-off embotech GmbH and the co-author of the software package FORCES PRO - An easy to use tool for rapid design of complex high-performance optimal controllers.
