data. engineering. deep learning. analog. music.

I'm a Masters student in Computer Science at the University of Vienna, a skilled developer and engineer focusing on Deep Learning and Data Engineering and currently into Federated Learning. I enjoy being in the space between research and application: solving problems with the help of state-of-the-art research. At the same time, I'm also interested in a broader view on AI, taking into account the ethical, legal, and social implications from its development and usage.

With a Bachelor's degree in Internet Computing from the University of Passau, Germany, I've also worked as a web developer, software engineer and as a lecturer, imparting programming skills to non-computer science students. For the last few years, I've also consulted, implemented and integrated customized software projects for a variety of different clients.

I find joy in creating music, capturing moments through film, and reading and contributing to Wikipedia (en, de). I'm also a French language learner, hobby chef and an avid explorer who enjoys discovering new things about the world.

Feel free to reach out if you are interested in collaborations or have exciting topics to discuss. I'm currently based in Vienna, Austria.
