Personal background

I am originally from Geneva in Switzerland, not a bad place, but a bit overrated according to this world-wide city rankings. Here is my curriculum vitae [.pdf]. As a highlight, I was selected in 1995 for the international Leslie Fox Prize in numerical analysis and I was awarded a second prize, previous prizewinners include people like L.N. Trefethen, N.J. Higham, J.W. Demmel, and A.M. Stuart.
