Servus! 🖖

My name is Tamás Gál, I am an astroparticle physicist and working at Erlangen Centre for Astroparticle Physics (ECAP).

I develop online monitoring and live reconstruction algorithms for the KM3NeT neutrino telescopes and maintain the IT services of KM3NeT and ECAP. My DevOps engineering skills include Docker (+Swarm), GitLab CI/CD, Jenkins, Xen, OpenVZ, Ansible etc. and more than two decades of experience with Linux and BSD as system administrator.

I spend most of my time with science (astroparticle physics), coding (Julia, Python, …) and electronics (both analog/digital, mainly on my DIY modular synthesizer); the rest preferably with traveling around the world with my girlfriend and motorcycle tours with Simon and Tris (off-road!). I have an obsession to repair things and keep them alive as long as possible, no matter if it’s gearbox restoration of my BMW R1100 GS or a replacement of a dead 0201 SMD capacitor on a MacBook logicboard.

Occasionally I publish some content on my YouTube channel, so give it a shot if you are interested in anything mentioned above.
