I studied physics and mathematics at the University of Heidelberg. In 2010 I finished my physics diploma thesis with title "ALICE TPC Online Tracking on GPU based on Kalman Filter". For the thesis I ported the ALICE HLT tracker to run on grafichs cards using the CUDA framework. The GPU tracker is installed in the ALICE HLT and running in 24/7 operation since beginning of 2012.
For my PhD I continued to work on the tracker and other projects related to the HLT. In addition, I developed an optimized DGEMM library and High Performance Linpack implementation for the LOEWE-CSC, Sanam, and Lattice-CSC clusters. I finished my PhD in natural sciences in 2014.
In Mathematics I am focusing on algebraic geometry, algebraic number theory, and complex analysis with a current focus on shimura curves.
