Sarah M. Neuwirth is a postdoctoral researcher in the Modular Supercomputing and Quantum Computing Group headed by Prof. Dr. Dr. Thomas Lippert at Goethe-University Frankfurt, Germany. She also holds a visiting researcher position at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre since 2021. Sarah is currently working on her habilitation, which is a qualification required in order to conduct self-contained university teaching and to obtain a full professorship in many European countries. In 2018, Sarah was awarded her Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Heidelberg University, Germany advised by Prof. Dr. Ulrich Brüning. She defended her degree with highest honors (summa cum laude) and was honored with the ZONTA Science Award 2019 for her outstanding dissertation. Her research interests include: high-performance storage systems, parallel I/O and file systems, modular supercomputing (i.e., resource disaggregation and virtualization), standardized cluster benchmarking, high performance computing and networking, distributed systems, and communication protocols. Sarah has worked on numerous research collaborations including working with: the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (DEEP Project Series, EUPEX), the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Her projects are funded by the European Commission, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in Germany, DOE, ORAU, and ORNL.
