Hi, I'm Benedikt.

I am a Distributed Systems Engineer from Germany.

Born in 1989, after my A-Levels and military service in 2010, I worked for several years as a freelance software developer, mainly creating web and database applications in the area of personal management, marketing, photography, and logistics. After my bachelor thesis in 2014, I started to work in academia at Chair of Informatics 2 in the Theory of Hybrid Systems Group headed by Prof. Dr. Ábrahám, where I focussed on the development of control strategies for hybrid electric vehicles as well as teaching activities. In September 2015, I started working at the Chair of Communication and Distributed Systems (COMSYS) in the network architectures group headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wehrle, where I finished my master thesis in the domain of HTTP/2 in 2018. From May 2018 until April 2019, I lived in London and work as a Systems Engineer at Cloudflare. Currently, I am based in Cologne, Germany and work remotely as a Distributed Systems Engineer.

My interests include: distributed systems, web performance, browser networking, data-science, internet protocols, it-security and privacy, and evolutionary algorithms.




I am the maintainer of the GeneiAL C++ Genetic Algorithm Library.

Moreover, I am involved in Internet-wide HTTP/2 measurements of netray.io.
