LIT CPS Lab is happy: We are doctor!

[Translate to Englisch:] Kevin

On Monday, Sept. 25, 2023, around 3 p.m., applause, whistles and joyful cheering could be heard on the upper floor of the Open Innovation Center (OIC). What were we all rejoicing about? Our colleague Kevin Feichtinger, now known internally as Dr. Kevin, completed the final oral exam of his doctoral studies successfully.

Who is this man?

Kevin is the first PhD that the LIT CPS Lab has produced since its start in 2018. That's why we're taking a closer look at who this PhD pioneer is.

In February 2020, Kevin started his career with us. Right from the start, he was highly motivated and took on more responsibility than expected of him. But it was not only his ambition that made Kevin stand out. He always took time to share his knowledge and offer help, especially for new colleagues or our student researchers.

What did this man accomplish?

Kevin spent a total of 3 years and 8 months with us at the LIT CPS Lab. In those many weeks, he drove a lot forward. Among other things, he published 24 papers - "I didn't force him to write that many," joked Professor Rick Rabiser, who also supervised Kevin's dissertation.

Kevin also attended 8 conferences and 2 workshops. "Kevin has the ability to connect with other researchers quickly at conferences, which has led to many successful collaborations during his PhD," Rick continues.

But Kevin wasn't just on the road: Here in Linz, he taught the Algorithms and Data Structures exercise for years. He listened to student feedback and was committed to further developing his teaching skills.

What do we wish for this man?

It should come as no surprise that we wish Kevin nothing but the very best for his professional and personal future. On top of that, we wish him that he will continue to inspire his new work colleagues with anecdotes. That he curates his curiosity and that he will meet us again in collaborations. Last but not least, we wish that the next time he visits Linz, he will bring muffins to the OIC again. 

Yes, these are our wishes for our Dr. Kevin.
