Kristin Krüger is a PhD student at the chair of real-time systems in the Technical University of Kaiserslautern. She holds a diploma in Computer Engineering (Informationstechnik) in the field of embedded computing systems (Informationsverarbeitung) and is currently researching security in time-triggered real-time systems.

In 2015, Kristin graduated from the Technical University of Kaiserslautern after completing her diploma thesis under the supervision of Prof. Gerhard Fohler at the chair of real-time systems. Her thesis is titled "Fault Tolerance and Membership in Distributed Resource Management" and won the faculty award for outstanding student achievements.

Her research interests include:

  • Dependability, fault tolerance
  • Membership protocols for distributed systems
  • Distributed resource management
  • Security in Real-Time Systems

Formerly, she was working with DREAMS (Distributed REal-time Architecture for Mixed Criticality Systems), a four-years project funded by the European Commission, which aims at developing a cross-domain architecture and design tools for networked complex systems where application subsystems of different criticality, executing on networked multi-core chips, are supported.

She is fluent in spoken and written English, holds a higher qualification in Latin and is learning Japanese (current language proficiency level is B1/N4). She favors Japanese and Vietnamese cuisine and likes beer.

If you share her research interests or if you simply want to know why she is holding so many beers in the picture, just send her an e-mail.
