Ulrike Fischer lives with her husband in Bonn, Germany. After studying mathematics at the University of Bonn, Ulrike became interested in the internal handling of fonts and in chess typesetting. With the help of the first edition of The LaTeX Companion, she wrote at first the chessfss package, which allows users to choose between various chess fonts, and other chess-related packages. She joined the LaTeX Project after the TUG meeting in Rio de Janeiro, where she presented her package tagpdf to create tagged PDFs to the team members. Together with other members of the LaTeX Project she now maintains various packages including luaotfload, hyperref, xcolor, the new LaTeX PDF management code, and more.
