Max Reichardt studied Applied Computer Science at the University of Kaiserslautern from 2002 to 2008 - with studies focusing on robotics, software engineering, and artificial intelligence. His diploma thesis dealt with the design and implementation of a framework for robot control systems.
Since august 2008, he is employed as scientific assistant and PhD student at the Robotics Research Lab. Software Engineering in the context of robotics is his main area of research. Frameworks, their quality attributes, and design principles are of particular interest in this respect. Max Reichardt is a main author of the open source robotic framework Finroc.
