Jan Ruh received his M.Sc. degree in computer science from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in 2018. From 2018 to 2021, he has been a Marie Curie Ph.D. Fellow of computer science with TTTech Computertechnik AG and TU Kaiserslautern. Since 2022, Jan Ruh is a research engineer at the TTTech Labs working on prototypes demonstrating the real-time operation of open-source virtualization solutions. For his ongoing Ph.D. at TU Kaiserslautern, he investigates the application of the time-triggered paradigm to hypervisor-based virtualization including fault-tolerant clock synchronization, time-triggered computation, and virtual time-triggered networks.
