Institut für Kernphysik, Münster – Germany

I am working as a PhD student at the "Institut für Kernphysik" in Münster for the ALICE experiment. In my diploma thesis I have developed the online control software for the Transition Radiation Detector of ALICE. Currently I am involved in the development of online particle identification methods for the Transition Radiation Detector to identify electrons with high transverse momenta in pp and heavy ion collisions within a few micro seconds.  Furthermore I am the system administrator of our computer network and involved in the maintenance of a 100 CPU cluster, which is part of the ALICE computing grid.
