I am interested in non-traditional operating system architectures. My research is focused on the interrelation of programming languages and operating system architecture. I am convinced that modern object-oriented programming languages can improve the reliability and security of operating systems. As these languages allow programming at a very high abstraction level it becomes more difficult to assess the performance by inspecting the source program. Therefore my interests also include performance evaluation and the visualization of system behavior.
I am a former reasearch staff member of the Department of Computer Science 4. I completed my Ph.D. thesis in December 2002.
