Having spend their past 6 years in academia on a bachelors thesis using OpenStack at CERN and a masters on computational storage, they have now settled on working in the field of radio astronomy (at ASTRON). Their work resolves around software engineering SCADA systems for LOFAR. Their expertise is in parallel and distributed systems including topics like HPC, GPGPU, performance engineering and multiprocessor programming. In their free time they enjoy restoring vintage electronic measurement equipment such as oscilloscopes or building entirely new circuits. The long term goal being to open a museum with accompanying workshop.
