Welcome! My name is Christof Teuscher. In my professional life I’m an associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Portland State University (PSU). My research team investigates next generation computing models and technologies. In my non-professional life I keep myself busy with photography and some ultra running on the side.

I share my adventures, stories, and pictures on this blog to inspire others.
