My name is Lukas Fleischer. I was born on March 6th, 1990 near Stuttgart (Germany) and I am currently living in Waterloo, ON (Canada). I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. My primary research areas are automata theory, formal languages, semigroup theory, algorithms, computational complexity and formal verification. An up-to-date list of my publications can be found below. Alternatively, you can check DBLP.
I actively contribute to a variety of open source software. Please scroll down for a (not necessarily complete) list of projects I am involved in.
I am also interested in machine learning, artificial intelligence and everything health and fitness related.

I am the current maintainer of calcurse, a powerful command-line based calendar program.
I am a regular contributor to cgit, a hyperfast web frontend for Git repositories written in C.
In late 2017, I started co-maintaining jpeg-archive, a utility to compress JPEG images for long-term storage without sacrificing perceived visual quality.
Other Projects and Contributions
aurdupes is a Python script that can be used to find duplicate packages in pacman databases and the Arch User Repository.
