I am a software engineer and live in Switzerland. I studied Computer Science in Karlsruhe before finishing my PhD there, at the Institute for Theoretical Computer Science at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
Originally I am from Oberkirch, a town at the edge of the Black Forest.
I play soccer for the Old Boys Basel senior team, and I like to go inline skating, e. g. at the Monday Night Skate. I am a passionate OpenStreetMap mapper. Furthermore, I sing tenor in the Cantus Basel choir and am member of the club Bundeswettbewerb Informatik - Alumni und Freunde e. V., supporting the German national student computer science competition.
