My thesis & internship at CERN

Computer networking has always fascinated me, and during the last years I’ve gotten more and more interested in the subject. It became quite clear that I wanted to do something network-related in my bachelor thesis. Until november 2010, I didn’t know what I’d write about, but that was before I found out I’ll be working at a large computer-cluster at CERN (more specifically the cluster for the HLT, a part of the ALICE-experiment). Guess what? My first task here is to completely redesign the network (both physically and logically). A huge task, but I don’t doubt a second that it’ll be loads of fun!
