Patrick Raaf is a Ph.D. candidate at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. He started his Ph.D in 2020 after receiving his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in computer science with an emphasis on experimental physics from the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany. Motivated by his master thesis, his current research interests include non-volatile main memory and the development of efficient abstractions to exploit the new direct access capabilities in a safe and consistent manner.
