Axel is a computational physicist and PhD student. He enjoys modelling the complex world around him via formulas and algorithms, preferably when those are only solvable via high performance computing.
Year long open-source advocate, project maintainer and programmer with a weird fetish for restoring old, unmaintained, broken FOSS software at night time. Admittedly loves many-core architectures and queuing well-picked jobs into TOP10 supercomputers.
Last but not least: opinions expressed are my own and do not necessarily represent the views of my employer/company/university/lab/thirdy-party-funding-source/fellow-physicists/neighbour. Random example: "Why the $?*% is there still Fortran in HPC?!"
