My name is Silke Horn and I am a software engineer at iteratec.
Until March 2014 I was a research and teaching assistent at the Department of Mathematics at Technische Universität Darmstadt (Germany).
The contents of my PhD studies were at the intersection of different areas of pure mathematics -- more precisely, I studied tropical oriented matroids and cubical complexes. (Who ever wants to know more about them, can have a look at some nice pictures here.) Afterwards I worked on discrete optimization for two years.
Moreover, I have been a developer of the mathematical software project polymake since 2009.

In case you've been wondering what Solros actually means, this is the solution: It is the Swedish word for sun flower.
