Holger Knublauch - Academic

Home Professional Academic Personal

I have never really been an academic, but would rather describe myself as a hands-on software developer with built-in curiosity and passion for my job. Yet, I somehow managed to also get a PhD in Computer Science and had a great time working at various research labs around the world, including Stanford University, the University of Manchester and the FAW research lab at the University of Ulm in southern Germany.

The following list of publications is left here mainly for historical interest, as many of the ideas presented there (including my PhD thesis) have become outdated. I have left academia in 2005 and have been working in industry ever since. Although I have been giving talks and presentations on international conferences since then, I didn't have time for formal publications.
