Professor Udo Kebschull studied computer science at the Technical University of Karlsruhe (today KIT) and graduated in 1989. From 1989 to 1990 he worked as a scientific employee at the Forschungszentrum Informatik (FZI) in Karlsruhe. He then moved to the University of Tübingen, where he received his doctorate in 1994 with a thesis on multi-stage logic synthesis. From 1993 to 1995 he returned to the FZI as project manager. In 1995 he accepted a professorship at the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences. In 1998 he moved to a chair of Computer Engineering at the University of Leipzig and in 2005 to the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Heidelberg. Since 2010 Udo Kebschull is head of the University Computer Center of the Goethe University Frankfurt in connection with a chair for infrastructures and computer systems in information processing.
Udo Kebschull joined the FIAS in 2019. His research focuses on the low-latency processing of large amounts of data, such as those generated by experiments in high-energy physics (CERN/ALICE). For this purpose, he converts the concept of data flow computers to modern FPGA hardware. Since 2015, Udo Kebschull has also been working in the field of data security.
