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 non-volatile main memories and file systems.
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.
