Frederic Schimmelpfennig is a Ph.D. candidate at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. He started his Ph.D. in 2019 after receiving his B.Ed. and M.Ed. degrees in computer science and physics from the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz.
Frederic's research interests include system scalability optimizations for data intensive workloads like Deep Learning. He is also developing file systems and explores current technologies like non-volatile main memories.
He was already known to the research group through his bachelor thesis. He continued to work on its results, a tool allowing multiple users to remotely work on three-dimensional visualizations of scientific data, for almost two years as a scientific assistant.
His master thesis in physics was about the simulation of wave optics for embedding in augmented reality experiments.
Frederic is member of the project Big Data in Atmospheric Physics (BINARY)
