Michael is a senior researcher in the “High-Performance Systems” division at Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) and leads the research activities on energy efficiency. He is the technical lead of the Operational Data Analytics team of the Energy Efficient HPC Working Group (EE HPC WG) and leads the Energy Efficiency Working Group of the ETP4HPC. Before Michael joined LRZ in 2012 he was a postdoc with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Canberra, Australia and has worked as an IT consultant in the financial and automotive sector in Munich, Germany. Michael received his PhD in computer science from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in 2010 for his work in high performance bioinformatics. His research focuses on energy-efficient HPC operations and scalable monitoring, but he still keeps up an interest in bioinformatics, computer architecture, and parallel programming.
