I'm the contact person for BHons students from TU Vienna planning to do an internship at MPII. Further details.

I've organized the HDT workshop.

Research Interests

Theory of Distributed Computing, in particular clock synchronization, randomized load balancing, routing, graph problems (e.g. dominating sets, maximal independent sets, coloring), fault-tolerance, and algorithms in hardware.
