Pascal Schöttle's great passions are mathematics and computer science. Both have accompanied his academic career ever since. After successfully completing his doctorate at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität in Münster, he came to Innsbruck in 2015 and spent a good three years at the university as a post-doc. Pascal Schöttle has been enriching our team as a lecturer for the past two years and has been shaping the DiBSE program significantly. In his courses, he teaches our students complex contents such as mathematics & statistics or algorithms & data structures with great commitment, practical relevance and profound knowledge. Besides teaching, research is also an important part of his work. Here, he concentrates on topics such as machine learning, IT security and privacy.
Matthias Janetschek has also been awarded the MCI Associate Professorship in this context. He began his academic career at the University of Innsbruck and graduated in 2018 with a Doctor of Philosophy in computer science in the field of high performance computing. Matthias has also accompanied our Digital Business & Software Engineering program from the very beginning and has made significant contributions to its design. He teaches with a lot of expertise and commitment to exciting topics such as databases & big data, programming technology and virtual reality. In his research, he focuses not only on embedded systems and Internet of Things but also on virtual reality.
At this point we would like to thank Asc. Prof. Dr. Pascal Schöttle and Asc. Prof. Matthias Janetschek, PhD for their commitment to teaching and research at the Department of Digital Business & Software Engineering.
