I. University Education

October 1985 – March 1990

Study of Electrical Engineering at the Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum, Germany. Final degree: Dipl.-Ing. (similar to a Master’s degree within the USA)
Vordiplom thesis (similar to a Bachelor’s thesis in the USA) titled “Analysis of Integrated Preamplifiers for Fiber-Optic Applications in the Gbit/sec Range,” supervised by Prof. Dr.-Ing. H.-M. Rein, July 1988.
Diplom thesis (similar to a Master’s thesis in the USA) titled “Analysis of Integrated Phase Shifters for Clock Signals in the GHz/sec Range Considering Special Parasitic Effects,” supervised by Prof. Dr.-Ing. H.-M. Rein, March 1990.

August 1988 – May 1989

As part of my Dipl.-Ing. (Master’s) study, I spent two semesters at the School of Electrical Engineering, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Ind.

March 1993 – February 1996

Enrolled in a special PhD-program (Graduiertenkolleg “Parallel and Distributed Systems”) at the Electrical Engineering Department of the University of Stuttgart and the Institute for Microelectronics Stuttgart. Research included the optimization of switch box architectures for interconnection networks via parallel simulation and analysis.
PhD-Thesis titled “Modeling and Parallel Simulation of Interconnection Networks”, supervised by Prof. Dr.-Ing. P. J. Kuehn and Prof. Dr.rer.nat B. Hoefflinger. Dissertation defense was June 26, 1996.

II. Employment

September 1990 – February 1993

Employed at the Institute for Microelectronics Stuttgart, Germany.
Research on fail-safe processor systems for automotive applications within the scope of the EC-Eureka project “Prometheus” under the supervision of BMW AG. Designed and implemented several VLSI-chips, especially ASIC-RISC processors for fail-safe applications.

March 1996 – June 1996

Employed at the Institute for Microelectronics Stuttgart, Germany.
Development of a semicustom PCI target ASIC for a high-dynamic-range CMOS camera system. Work included system specification, VHDL-description and synthesis of the target.

August 1996 – May 1997

Visiting Assistant Professor at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University, West Lafayette, Ind.

August 1997 – August 2003

Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Missouri, Columbia, Mo.

August. 2003 – Present

Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Missouri, Columbia, Mo.

September. 2004 – Present

Director of Undergraduate Studies at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Missouri, Columbia, Mo.
