The CSC07 would deepen my
knowledge of the tools I have already used, but also expand it to Grid
Technologies, Network and Computer Security, Data Acquisition etc. Current
Work: In my diploma thesis I developed a Monte Carlo Simulation written in
Fortran for single top production in association with a W-Boson as a
background to Higgs production in vector boson fusion and decay into WW. For
my Ph.D. thesis I turned to C++ being part of the Herwig++ development team.
The goal is to implement a realistic model for the Underlying Event in
Herwig++. Beside that, I am involved in the development of a parton level
Monte Carlo program which is able to simulate various processes at NLO QCD.
