Klaus Galensa
Hafen
Hamburg, Germany
 

Klaus Galensa joined Siemens AG in Germany more than ten years ago. He is a systems engineer in telecommunications. He also worked as a software developer for Siemens in Florida. Galensa is responsible for performance, traffic management, and quality of service issues in wireless access networks, so he carefully studies many technical papers, and then hopes for a brainstorm that solves his technical problems. Since that usually does not work, he often meets with other engineers, drinking coffee until somebody has a flash of inspiration. Currently, he is trying to improve the capacity of nodes in third generation radio access networks.

As a teenager, Galensa wanted to become a mathematician, but then read W. Ross Ashby's An introduction to cybernetics, and decided to study computer science at the University of Bremen. He never lost his knack for mathematics, though.

His technical interests are in wireless communications, system performance analysis, stochastic modeling, real time operating systems, and teletraffic theory.

Galensa's personal interests are photography, French sociology, and ballroom dancing. He is married, and has a young son.
