Short Biography

Currently, I am a PhD student at the

University of Aachen

with the Communication and Distributed Systems group since Mai 2006. My research focus in the distributed systems area lies on scalable, flexible, and secure service platforms and peer-to-peer systems.

I interned for six months at Intel Corporation to apply and extend my experience with processor virtualization technologies and OS construction.

From April to June 2004, I worked as a research assistant with the Systems Group at the University of Karlsruhe. Our work on virtual system virtualization for device driver re-use and dependability in operating systems resulted in a publication at OSDI '04.

The ERTOS group at UNSW in Sydney had invited me from July 2003 to February 2004 as a visiting research assistant. There, my supervisor Kevin Elphinstone and myself developed a user-level device driver model. We proposed system design solutions for high performance of such drivers in a publication for ACSAC '04. Through this continuation of my interests as a student, I acquired a strong background in the construction of complex systems and the related performance and security concerns.

In May 2003, I graduated as Diplominformatiker (M.Sc. equiv.) in Karlsruhe. My long affiliation with the Systems Group during my studies allowed me invaluable insights to systems research. Among other projects, I participated in the design and implementation of a multi-server operating system on top of the L4 micro-kernel. In 2000, I had already been involved in similar work with the SawMill Linux at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, New York.
