Hi there, I'm Erik. I'm an undergraduate Computer Science and German student at the University of Wisconsin — Madison. I'm probably graduating spring 2015.
I pretend to be a developer most of the time, and occasionally successfully manage to pass for a somewhat decent one. I'm interested in programming languages, cryptography, general purpose GPU, and a whole bunch of other stuff. Really, I just like programming.
I really try not to limit myself to a single paradigm or style. I love learning new languages and frameworks, and really enjoy picking up new ways of thinking about things. I've also implemented way too many languages [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9] and virtual machines [1, 2, 3, 4], in my spare time.
I've done some research work with general purpose GPU computing for global climate modeling software. One of the projects I developed is the topic of this paper, which was presented at the SPIE Remote Sensing conference in 2013. Papers for some other projects will be published in 2014.
Quite a few of my personal programming projects end up on Github eventually, almost all of them with basically no practical use. However, if you are so inclined, you can find my Github profile here. Also, go check out my explanations of some things on the projects page.
By now, you hopefully have a decent idea of who I am. If you would like to get in contact with me, send me an email, I'd love to hear from you, internet stranger.
