About Me

Marco Gerards received the M.Sc. degrees in computer science and in applied mathematics from the University of Twente, Enschede, the Netherlands, in 2008 and 2011 respectively. In 2014 he received his Ph.D. degree for a thesis on algorithmic power management. He worked on Google Summer of Code projects in 2006, 2007 and 2008, and while he was a computer science student, he was maintainer of GNU GRUB. His research interests are digital hardware design, sustainable computing and computing for sustainability.
