Curriculum Vitae

Bettina Schnor studied Mathematics and Computer Science at the TU Braunschweig, Germany, where she also received her Ph.D. degree in 1990.

From March 1990 to February 1996 she was research scientist at the Institute of Operating Systems and Computer Networks at the TU Braunschweig. There, she established the research field "Distributed Systems" and the working group "Failure Tolerance and Load Balancing in Distributed Systems". During this time, Bettina Schnor did also lecture at the Justus-Liebig-University Giessen (October 94 - July 95).

From March 1996 to September 1996 she was a lecturer at the BTU Cottbus for Operating Systems. From October 1996 to March 2000 she was researcher and lecturer at the Institute for Telematics at the Medical University of Luebeck, Germany. Since April 2000 she is head of the Department of Operating Systems and Distributed Systems at the University Potsdam. From 2006 - 2009 she was also head of the Computer Science Institute of Potsdam University.

Research Interests

Her research interests are distributed systems, fault tolerance, cluster and grid computing, and Assisted Living Applications.
