All good things come in threes: Dr. Alexandros Stamatakis – head of the HITS research group Scientific Computing and a computer science professor at KIT Karlsruhe – is being awarded for his teaching activities at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) for the third time. The “hands-on bioinformatics practical” which Dr. Stamatakis conducted together with PhD student Michael Hamann (who works at the Chair of Dr. Dorothea Wagner), was rated the best practical in the Department of Computer Science at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).
The certificates will be presented on June 22 as part of the 2018 Computer Science Day. http://www.informatik.kit.edu/7054_8776.php
The joint practical also highlights the increased collaboration between the chairs in the funding application process for the excellence cluster “Algorithm Engineering for the Scalability Challenge” (AESC). At the same time, the practical reveals how strong the research in KIT’s Department of Computer Science is because the results were published by the participating students in the academic journal “Bioinformatics.” https://academic.oup.com/bioinformatics/advance-article/doi/10.1093/bioinformatics/bty384/4994264
Alexandros Stamatakis is head of the research group Scientific Computing at HITS and Professor of High Performance Computing in Life Sciences at KIT. He received awards for his courses at KIT in 2015 and 2016.
