I've studied physics at the university of Wurzburg, Germany. During my PHD in numerical astrophysics I've got in touch with HPC computing. I've developed parallel codes and ran simulations at HLRS and LRZ computing centers. After my PHD, I've decided to start a career in industry. I moved to Lake Constance and began to work for Airbus in the satellite business where my experience with parallel computing is one important aspect for my work.
