Stefan Huber

I am a computer scientist, mathematician and software engineer. I worked in academia for about 8 years, primarily on algorithms in computational geometry and topology. Currently, I am an R&D engineer and team leader at B&R Industrial Automation.

About me

In February 2015 I joined the automation company B&R, where I am heading a fine group of R&D engineers with a focus on algorithms and mathematics. I am responsible for the PLC software operating the next-generation transport system ACOPOStrak, for which I initially developed the concepts and architectures, mathematical models and core algorithms.

Besides my main job I am also teaching at the University of Salzburg and the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences

I was a Postdoc researcher at the IST Austria (Institute of Science and Technology Austria) in the group of Herbert Edelsbrunner in the years 2013–2015 and worked in computational topology.

At bct electronic I worked on a multi-channel echo-canceling system for the sound server Pulseaudio on Linux.

I had a Senior Scientist position at the Department of Mathematics (2012) at the University of Salzburg and I was a Postdoc at Martin Held’s Computational Geometry and Applications Lab (2011–2012) at the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Salzburg.

I finished my Doctoral studies in 2011 at the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Salzburg. Furthermore, I received a Master degree in Mathematics, a Master degree (Dipl.-Ing.) in Computer Science, a Bachelor degree in Mathematics and a Bachelor degree in Computer Science in the years 2009, 2008, 2007 and 2006.

What I cannot create, I do not understand.

Science is what we understand well enough to explain to a computer.
Art is everything else we do.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, a formula is worth a thousand pictures.
