Technical installations. In particular, I am responsible for supporting the management in the Centre's development strategy and in managing the maintenance, renovation, and extension of the CSCS installations and buildings. I collaborate closely with the COO on business continuity, risk management, and energy procurement. I also represent CSCS in the cooperation with the buildings department of ETH Zurich for the planning and execu- tion of new projects and renovations. A further strategic part of my job is to define the CSCS facility requirements for IT procurement projects. I am responsible for and lead the Facility Management Working Structure and its members.

What working at CSCS means for me
I have the opportunity to work in an international environment whilst enjoying the beauty of an idyllic location such as Ticino. The melting pot of people with completely different experiences, habits, languages, and social backgrounds allows each and every one to grow and widen their horizons.

What I like most about my work at CSCS
For a job to be interesting to me, it needs to be dynamic, innovative, challenging, and give me the opportunity to learn and grow continuously. My current position at CSCS satisfies all the above on a daily basis!

What challenges me at my work
Because timelines for construction projects are significantly longer than those for the procurement of supercomputers, one of my greatest challenges is to try to anticipate the needs of future systems in order to prepare the building to accommodate them when they arrive.
