I currently work as lead developer at Simplora, which I also co-founded – our blog is at blog.simplora.de. I studied at Technische Universität München (TUM). I did my bachelor’s thesis at Siemens AG in Munich, Germany and at TUM. Its title is “Collaborative Filtering in Structured Time Series Data” and one of my advisors was Achim Rettinger, who is now at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. My supervisor was Prof. Kramer from the Chair of Bioinformatics at TUM’s Computer Science Departement. I had a great time at Siemens doing the research for my bachelor’s thesis.
My minor during my B.Sc. studies was psychology, which was offered in cooperation with LMU Munich. I think psychology is one of the most interesting sciences and that it will continue to produce some truly astonishing results in the years to come. Computer Science and Psychology also have more intersections than most people think: Human Factors and Cognitive Science are only the most prominent examples.
