Cornelius Brand received his bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Universität Passau in 2014, graduating with a thesis on algebraic automata theory under the supervision of Professor Franz J. Brandenburg. Brand has been supported by a scholarship from the German National Academic Foundation since his third year of study. Currently, he is a second year graduate student at the department of Computer Science at Saarland University, where his advisor is Holger Dell. His research interests include the combinatorics of polyhedra and combinatorial optimization in connection with parameterized counting complexity, as well as lower bounds in various computational models and under certain hardness assumptions.
