About me

I am a Postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the
Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and member of the NETWORKS program. I am working in the research group Stochastic Operations Research supervised by Sem Borst.

Before joining TU/e, I completed my Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics at INP-Toulouse and IRIT-CNRS under the supervision of
Urtzi Ayesta and Maaike Verloop in Toulouse, France. My Ph.D. thesis analyses the impact that job replication has on the stability region and performance of multi-server systems.

My research interests concern queueing theory, load balancing and stochastic optimization. I am also interested in the implementation of learning algorithms to queueing systems to improve performance when some of the dynamics of these systems are unknown.
