Welcome! I’m a research assistant in the Distributed Information Systems group (prof. Karl Aberer) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL).

Short bio

I graduated with B.S in Electrical Engineering from Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University Sts. Cyril and Methodius, Skopje, Macedonia in 1999. I joined the Graduate School in Computer Science at EPFL in October,1999 and completed it in July, 2000. I’ve been an assistant in the Distributed Information Systems Lab at EPFL since September, 2000.

Research

My research interests include: peer-to-peer information systems, decentralized access structures, use of economic and bio-inspired principles in decentralized databases…Currently, I’m working on the following project:

·         Self-Organizing Access Structures for peer-to-peer Information Systems
