I’m a postdoctoral researcher in the Distributed Systems department of Delft University of Technology, focussing on building efficient and scalable decentralized systems. My research interests include decentralized systems, distributed systems, electronic markets, and blockchain technology.

Previously: In 2021, I completed my PhD thesis titled Decentralization and Disintermediation in Blockchain-based Marketplaces, under the supervision of Dick Epema and Johan pouwelse.

I completed my master thesis at Delft University of Technology in 2016. In my master thesis titled Identifying and Managing Technical Debt in Complex Distributed Systems, I improved various aspects of our long-running academic software, named Tribler.

I also have my own company named CodeUp. My primary business activity is app development and web hosting. You can find more information about these activities on the website of CodeUp.

Besides my professional activities, I enjoy travelling, snowboarding and bouldering.
