This is my website. My own. My second. I still
get asked by many people, what the hell is X3T? To
make a long story short, my University's email address was way too long
for my taste, so I looked around for something shorter. I tried various
accounts on web.de and things, but they weren't that much better. So
somehow the idea was born to get a real website and maybe some webspace
for images and stuff. X3T was among the shortest I
could find, and it also reminded me on one cool rocket in one of my
favorite comic books. Although, the rockets name there was XR8,
X3T seemed close enough. :)
What to find here?
are some links to click on here, surprise. The majority of
bandwidth and storage space is taken by pictures found in the adventures section. There
are from various trips to conferences and the occasional vacation. You
can also take a closer look into the research
area, where I summarized my research interests, and have also listed
some projects and publications. The CV obviously shows a curriculum
vitae of mine and you can reach me through various means provided on
the contact page.
February 2009 I finished my PhD in computer science from the
University of Magdeburg and I work now in the German Climate Computing
Centre in Hamburg in the area of scientific visualization and high
performance computing. Besides
working all day long in the lab, I like the outdoors and also climbing
and road bike cycling. ps. In the picture I am on the right side, the other is my older brother Stephan.
is the city where I was born, and in which I grew up. Over the years I have also lived in Dresden and in Canada for some time,
but came back to study computer science at the University here in Magdeburg. The city has
changed quite a bit over the last decades and the quality of life
improved a lot. In 2009 I moved downstream and I am now living in Hamburg.
