    Teaching

    Starting in winter term 2017/18, I am reading the lecture "Operating Systems", and starting in summer term 2018, the lecture "Performance Engineering & Benchmarking of Computersystems".

    Starting in summer term 2018, I am reading the new master's lecture "Self-Aware Computing" together with Dr. Krupitzer.

    From summer term 2014 to summer term 2017, I was coordinating the exercises on the master's lecture "Performance Engineering & Benchmarking of Computersystems" and the bachelor's lecture "Operating Systems".

    I am involved in supervising students during multiple practical courses and seminars since summer term 2012.
