About

Dr. Lars Nagel is a postdoctoral research fellow at Mainz University since 2011. He received his PhD from the University of Durham and his computer science diploma from the Technical University Munich. In between he worked as a software developer for Trium Analysis Online. His research interests are (randomised) algorithms, distributed computing and high performance computing.

He was a PC member of the following international conferences: SEAA (2014-15), P2P (2015), PDP (2015-17), ICPP (2016), IPDPS (2017), IWSG (2017), WOPSSS (2017), Euro-Par (2017).
