From 2010 until 2017 I studied computer science here at TU Dortmund University. After finishing my master's degree, I started as a research assistant in the DBIS Group leading by Jens Teubner. Already during my master thesis, I gained my first experience with the MxKernel project, which I'm now focused on.

Within the context of MxKernel, my research interests are modern hardware, which is characterized by many cores, multiple sockets, and huge amounts of main memory. The MxKernel is a prototype of DB/OS Co-Design to get a better impact on this new hardware. A unique feature is that we do without traditional threads and use a lightweight alternative for parallel control flows instead, which has some advantages, such as reducing latches and more transparent memory accesses. The MxTasking framework is a fundamental building blog related to our DB/OS Co-Design vision.
