I studied computer science at the RWTH Aachen (Germany), University of Trento (Italy) and the TU Kaiserslautern (Germany). Now I am a doctoral fellow at the National Research Centre for Geomputation in Ireland.

I started to be interested computer science because I wanted to know how computers work. I found it fascinating that humans were able to build a “universal” machine that can basically do anything (later I learned that this is not true ;)).

The topics I am interested in vary greatly. In these times, new technologies and opportunities grow so fast that it is hard to follow them all.

However if had to name some of my areas of interest, it would probably come down to

thought that does not mean that I am very familiar with all of these topics.

I am an avid programmer and active user on Stackoverflow.

I know I cannot know everything, but I am trying to learn a bit more every day.

Some of my favorite quotes:

“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.” (Douglas Adams - Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy)

“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.” (Antoine de Saint Exupery)
