Bio:

Christian Wimmer is the architect of GraalVM Native Image. He was one of the first engineer of the GraalVM project, and helped growing it from a research project of Oracle Labs to a supported Oracle product. He believes that all languages should be equally fast, and that we therefore need to stop writing individual VMs and instead have one polyglot VM. His research interests span from compilers, virtual machines, and secure systems to component-based software architectures.

He received a Dr. techn. degree in Computer Science (advisor: Prof. Hanspeter Mössenböck) and a Dipl.-Ing. degree in Computer Science, both from the Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria. Before the time at Oracle, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Computer Science of the University of California, Irvine. He worked with Prof. Michael Franz at the Secure Systems and Software Laboratory on compiler optimizations, dynamic programming languages, and language-based security.
