I have been a member of the Computer Systems Architecture group (CSA) in the Computer Science Department (CS) of the University of Amsterdam (UvA), first as a PhD student (graduated on 30 Nov. 2006, Prof. Dr. C. Jesshope, promotor and A. D. Pimentel, co-promotor) and then as a Postdoc researcher between July 2002 and April 2007. During my PhD studies, I was also enrolled in the graduate school Advanced School for Computing and Imaging (ASCI). As of May 2007, I have joined ABN AMRO Asset Management B.V. in Amsterdam to work as a Senior Model Developer.

On this webpage, I made available most of the publications that I have co-authored during my stay at the University of Amsterdam.
