I was born in Mainz-Mombach (FRG) on December 12, 1972, and have lived in
Germany, Austria and Greece (where I graduated from school), before I came
back to Austria to study Computer Science in October 1990. I received my M.Sc. degree
(Dipl.-Ing.) in January 1995, and am working on my Ph.D. degree at the moment.
Currently I'm employed as an assistant (researching & teaching; many people would call me an "Assistant Professor", but I don't like being called names) at the
Vienna University Of Technology, Department for Programming Languages
and Compiler Construction.
Apart from my obvious interest in this field, I'm also interested in
data compression, fractals and
I also seem to have built up a reputation as a relatively security-aware
person, although I find Unix boring these days.
(NON-SERIOUS PART FOLLOWS!)
Other things blah blah...
I like reading books by
or Terry Pratchett, or even real classics like Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories.
Some of my other favourite authors are Oscar Wilde, Lewis Carroll and
Mark Twain. You've guessed it, I like witty writers with a strange sense
of humour. Suggestions regarding other authors that might interest me
I also enjoy computer games, occasionally. Thanks to the way the games
industry is evolving, cranking out fewer good games every year,
it helps me save a lot of time.
