My name is Florian Kurpicz and I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Prof. Peter Sanders' Group at the Institute of Theoretical Informatics, Algorithm Engineering. I received my PhD in Computer science from the TU Dortmund University in 2020, with a thesis on parallel text index construction under the supervision of Prof. Johannes Fischer.
I am working in Algorithm Engineering and Stringology. The latter is the research area of algorithms and data structures for textual data, occurring in the form of (scientific) literature, source code, DNA and proteins sequences, and many more. Here, my research focuses on engineering scaling and space efficient algorithms and text indices in shared and distributed memory. This website contains information about my research, more details about me, and other pointers to other activities.
