Hi!

This is my personal webpage.

You will find some information about myself, my skill set, and especially my current research publications.

I'm currently a researcher at fortiss pursuing my PhD in Computer Science. The main focus is hereby on Industrial Automation and OPC UA.

Happy browsing!

 

What I Do

Program

I love to program and write code since over 15 years. During this time I wrote many applications in C, C++, Python, Typescript, Java, Perl and many more languages.

Research

Currently I'm pursuing my PhD in Informatics and love to do research and find new solutions for arising problems. The main topic includes industrial automation, robotics, and OPC UA.

Manage Projects

I'm a certified Professional SCRUM Master and Professional SCRUM Product Owner, as well as holder of the PRINCE2 Foundation Certificate in project management.

Travel the world

I like to travel the world and visit new places, meet new people, and get to know new cultures. My goal is to visit every country at least once.
