I am Marcel Wunderlich and I am a mathematician by training and system architect by heart. I currently work in my dayjob as computer researcher and system administrator at the University of Münster. My current fields of interest revolve around Kubernetes, OpenStack, cloud and edge high performance computing and cloud sync and share solutions.
I love to enable people to do high quality work, be it via teaching fundamentals, foundational research or providing infrastructure.
I wrote my bachelor's thesis on hyperbolic groups and discrete morse theory and my masters's thesis on Riemannian submersions. In my PhD thesis I proved the short-time existence of Mean Curvature Flow of cones in Euclidean space under appropriate restrictions using tools from Geometric Analysis.
As you can guess from a lot of posts in my blog, I like to lift weights.
On this blog you will find a random collection of thoughts I had for some time, linux and coding stuff, lifting, food and stuff which I think is important or interesting. The main page is a bit cumbersome, feel free to browse the archive. This blog is pretty much run in the reply-to-public manner suggested by Matt Might, so if you have any feedback or questions on any topic, make sure to send me an email or hit me up in the IRCs.
You can contact me via email (solve the riddle in the imprint or just use my lastname @uni-muenster.de), or hit me up on Freenode or QuakeNet.
