My current research is focused on:

  • Design and implementation of dependable/reliable systems out of unpredictable/unreliable components; 
  • Aging assessment/prediction and lifetime reliability aware resource management; 
  • Unconventional computation paradigms and computation with emerging nano-devices.  

As general research policy I'm probing the future via speculative research projects while still remaining well anchored in nowadays technological reality. In this line of reasoning I consider a good balance between speculative research aimed to stretch the technological limits of computer technology, thereby considering a long term horizon, and short term (applied) research of premium importance. Additionally, I consider the collaboration with industry as an important objective for applied research as well as for more speculative projects.

More details about my past and current research and my research strategy can be found in My Research Statement.
