Projects, Code, Research

A site about 10+ Years doing IT stuff

This site is about ...

... my love for writing code, the IT projects I've realized, and my academic publications. In my free time I also enjoy making music and taking photos. My home is Berlin, Germany where I live with my wife and baby girl.
