Lars Nagel studied Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics at the Technichal University of Munich. After his graduation he worked as a software developer for Siemens and Trium Analysis Online. In 2007 he continued his studies of computer science under the supervision of Tom Friedetzky at Durham University. During this time he spent seven months at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. After earning his PhD degree, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Paderborn and the University of Mainz. Since 2017 he is a lecturer at Loughborough University.

Lars Nagel's main interests are in theoretical computer science and systems. His research focuses on efficient and fault-tolerant algorithms and data structures for distributed computing, e.g. for load balancing and scheduling. Application areas of his work are cloud and green computing, high-performance computing and storage systems.
