I received a Doctor of Engineering degree (Dr.-Ing.) in Computer Science from the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. My research focus was on compilers and runtime optimizations for distributed systems. My areas of interest include compiler construction, design of programming languages, parallel programming, and performance analysis and tuning.
