Andreas Pfeiffer


Andreas Pfeiffer has studied Physics in Giessen and Heidelberg, where he got his Ph.D. in 1988. Since then he was working until 1998 with the University of Heidelberg on the CERES/NA45 experiment at CERN, studying the creation of e+e- pairs in ultra relativistic heavy ion collisions at the SPS. His main responsibilities were computing, both on-line/DAQ and offline/simulation. In January 1999 he joined CERN to lead the Anaphe (former LHC++) project in IT division. With the startup of the LHC Computing Grid (LCG) project, Andreas is now working in the PI project of LCG and on analysis related issues in the CMS experiment.
