Peter Sanders

Short CV:
Peter Sanders received an MS degree in Computer Science from North Carolina State University in 1992, a Diploma and Doctoral degree in Computer Science from University of Karlsruhe, Germany in 1993 and 1996 and a habilitation from University of Saarbrücken, Germany in 2000.  Since 1997 he works at the Max-Planck-Institute for Computer Science in Saarbrücken, Germany, now as a senior researcher.  His research interests focus on the design, analysis, and implementation of efficient algorithms for advanced models of computation.  A particular emphasis is on randomized techniques for coping with irregular access patterns, massive data sets, and memory hierarchies. Specific topics include cache efficiency, parallel disk access, communication in hierarchical networks, and emulation of easy to program models on realistic models of computation. He has published more than 70 papers in these areas.
