I work as a research assistant with Prof. Leser at the Knowledge Management in Bioinformatics group at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. I’m a PhD candidate working at the intersection of distributed computing, scientific computing, and machine learning.

In 2015, I earned my M.Sc. degree in computer science, at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. My bachelor’s thesis was conducted at Freie Universität Berlin, in the field of computer vision. Before and during my studies, I’ve participated in computer science competitions and scored quite successfully on them. Almost since the beginning of my studies, I’ve been working part time as developer in student jobs. For 18 months, I’ve been developing scientific visualization software at the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) in Potsdam. My master’s thesis was conducted in collaboration with the department for geoinformatics at the GFZ in the field of unsupervised machine learning and time series analysis.
