# What I Do
Currently, I am studying for a PhD in computer science at the [Johannes Kepler University](https://www.jku.at) in Linz, Austria.
My supervisor is [Prof. Hanspeter Mössenböck](http://ssw.jku.at/General/Staff/HM/), and my research targets compiler technologies, language interpreters and virtual machines.
I also teach and give programming courses for other computer science students.
In 2021, after years of studying and working as researchers, two of my colleagues and I decided to do a complete turnaround and build our own business.
So we founded our startup [Sylagon](https://www.sylagon.com), and made it our mission to improve the web by providing a service that automates the process of creating interactive and data-driven web visualizations.
We believe that there should also be a way for people without a technical background to benefit from simple, interactive and meaningful data visualizations.
In a first step, we were accepted into the pre-scale-up program of the incubator [Tech2B](https://www.tech2b.at).
We have an ongoing cooperation with [Oracle Labs](https://labs.oracle.com) and work on [GraalVM](https://www.graalvm.org/), which is a polyglot virtual machine that executes programs of different languages.
In particular, my research focuses on improving partial evaluation, a technique used by the Graal compiler to transform the existing interpreters of the virtual machine into efficient code for a given user program.
Before, I was studying for a PhD in computer science, and I worked at the [Institute for System Software](http://ssw.jku.at) in coorperation with [Oracle Labs](https://labs.oracle.com).
My research focused on partial evaluation, automatic compiler generation and the Futamura projections in [GraalVM](https://www.graalvm.org/) and the Graal compiler.
