Curriculum vitae

From 1994 to 1999 I studied Wirtschaftsinformatik (a combination of computer science and business administration) at the University of Mannheim. My studies were supported by a scholarship of the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes (German National Merit Foundation).

In 1999 and 2000 I worked for the AT&T Center for Internet Research (ACIRI) at the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI), Berkeley. During that time I wrote my diploma thesis on "Equation-Based Congestion Control". After completing the thesis, I participated in a joint project of ICSI and DaimlerChrysler Research, Palo Alto, on simulations for mobile communication.

From May 2000 to June 2003 I was working as a "wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter" at the department of computer science and mathematics at the University of Mannheim. I received my PhD degree in May 2003.

From Juli 2003 on, I'll be working as a postdoc at EPFL.
