M.Sc. Stefan Kehrer

Stefan Kehrer is a PhD student in the Parallel and Distributed Computing Group at Reutlingen University, Germany and does research in the fields of Cloud Computing, Parallel Computing, and Distributed Systems. He is a member of the Doctoral Program Services Computing at the Herman Hollerith Center in Böblingen and affiliated with the Institute of Architecture of Application Systems (IAAS) at the University of Stuttgart led by Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Frank Leymann. As part of his PhD project, Stefan Kehrer investigates how parallel applications can benefit from cloud environments and cloud-specific properties such as on-demand access to compute resources, pay-per-use, and elasticity. In this context, he aims to develop novel concepts and methods for the design, development, and management of cloud-aware parallel applications and systems.
