Hi, I’m Chris, or Christoph Rüegg, from Zürich, Switzerland. On the internet I usually go by cdrnet or just cdr, my initials.
Technically I’m an electrical engineer with focus on VLSI/chip design, signal processing and everything around communication. But even before the studies I actually spent much more time in the software world and soon started my own opensource projects, like Math.NET. Naturally I heavily extended my curriculum towards computer science and other interesting subjects like machine learning, network security or computer graphics & vision.
These days I have a lot of fun around distributed computing and number crunching in the cloud for Lokad SAS, a young and small yet very strong company with an awesome team distributed all over Europe. Formally I also have my own company: rüegg-engineering.ch.
If not at some computer, you might find me constructing or flying some multi-copter drone (currently a rather large one with six rotors).
