Dr. Andreas Franz Borchert

I'm working as scientific assistant at the Institute of Applied Information Processing (Institut für Angewandte Informationsverarbeitung) at Ulm University.

My main research area is library design for OO programming languages. The key point is that libraries should be considered as language extensions. This allows programming languages to be designed as a kernel which exports some basic abstractions and mechanisms. An example for such a kernel language is Oberon which is extended by our research project (Ulm's Oberon System) to cover all fundamental areas which are usually implemented by OO-languages instead of libraries (e.g. concurrency, synchronisation, persistence and support of distributed systems).
