Andreas Gerstlauer received a Dipl.-Ing. degree in Eletrical Engineering from the University of Stuttgart , Germany in 1997 and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Information and Computer Science from the University of California, Irvine (UCI) in 1998 and 2004, respectively. Prior to joining UT Austin in 2008, he was an Assistant Researcher in the Center for Embedded Computer Systems (CECS) at UC Irvine, leading a research group to develop electronic system-level (ESL) design tools. Commercial derivatives of such tools are in use at the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and NEC Toshiba Space Systems among others.

Dr. Gerstlauer is co-author on 3 books and more than 30 conference and journal publications, and his paper on OS modeling was reprinted as one of the most influential contributions at DATE. He has presented in numerous conference and industrial tutorials, and serves on the program committee of major conferences such as DATE and CODES+ISSS. Dr. Gerstlauer's research interests include system-level design automation, system modeling, design languages and methodologies, and embedded hardware and software synthesis.
