Welcome to my minimalist homepage. I’m Alexander Pucher, PhD candidate in Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I study Clouds and Distributed Systems as member of RACE-Lab and enjoy the beauty of the California central coast.


Before starting the PhD program at UC Santa Barbara, I earned my Masters in Computer Science from Vienna University of Technology. During this time I also joined UC San Diego as guest researcher. See the About page for details.

I occasionally add articles to my professional blog. To get in touch, please feel free to comment or send me an email. Continue to the Blog and Contact pages for details.

A list of academic, professional and other projects I’m involved in – or have been at some point in the past – can be found on the Projects page.

My research interest is complexity in distributed systems arising from large scale and heterogeneous environments. Have a look at the Research page to learn more.
