I am originally from Amberg which is situated not too far from the Czech/German border in
the North-East of Bavaria. I obtained my "Diplom" in mathematics at the
LMU Munich and my PhD at the ILLC and the CWI in
Amsterdam. Since then I have been been working as researcher, first at the CWI Amsterdam,
then at Imperial College London and, after that, at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford.
If I will find more time (and some interesting things to say) I might provide some more details about myself. For now I close with the vital information that the picture above is taken not too far away from my home town and depicts the ruins of Kallmünz Castle.
