Short CV

Born in Vienna, Austria, in 1980, I studied Computer Science at the TU Vienna from 1999-2004. After spending 6 month at the Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs in Boston, MA, I started my PhD at the TU Dortmund and received my CS doctorate in late 2008 under Prof. Petra Mutzel's guidance (Chair of Algorithm Engineering). I continued there as a postdoc, intermitted by a 2-months stay at Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic, visiting Prof. Petr Hliněný in spring 2009. Starting April 2010, I held the position of junior-professor for Algorthm Engineering, funded by the Carl-Zeiss foundation, at the Friedrich-Schiller-University of Jena. Since April 2013, I'm the head of the Theoretical Computer Science group at Osnabrück University. After an offer from Uni Passau, I was upgraded to a W3 professorship in April 2017.
