Further information:

Stephan Murer gained his Diploma and Ph.D. in computer science from ETH Zürich, doing research on using hardware supported context switches to hide memory latency in non-uniform memory architectures. After that he moved on to the International Computer Science Institute at UC Berkeley to continue and expand his research into parallel object-oriented programming languages and type systems for object-oriented languages. After returning to Switzerland he joined Credit Suisse as an internal consultant. He then held a number of different roles in Credit Suisse as a manager, project lead, and technical expert. In 2000 he was promoted and put in charge of the firm’s information systems architecture.   Stephan has also served as a member of the Swiss National Research Council, helping the National Science Foundation to allocate research funding.
