Born and raised in Coburg, Germany I relocated to Innsbruck, Austria in 2018 to study and climb.
I'm passionate about professional software development in particular with the latest machine learning technology. After my bachelor's degree in Information Systems, I worked for three years developing an international e-commerce platform. In 2021 I accomplished my Computer Science master's degree with a focus on the security of deep learning.
I have gathered great experiences on my first big mountain project, the Kilimanjaro, as well as from multiple alpine climbing, paragliding and skiing tours across the alps.

The scientific paper on the security of deep machine learning models was written together with Univ.-Prof. Dr. Rainer Böhme and Dr. Cecilia Pasquini. I contributed to the setup and execution of experiments, evaluated the results and drafted the writeup. The paper was published in Proceedings of the 2020s Workshop on Information Hiding and Multimedia Security and was part of my masters' thesis at the University of Innsbruck.Academic, Deep Learning
Avalanche Report is an application for the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa that gets the latest data from the Avalanche Warning Services Tyrol - South Tyrol - Trentino and lets you easily access the up to date information. The application started as a side-project by myself and has grown a steady number of regular users.
The project received the Digital-Hero Award by the "Standortagentur Tirol".
#RelatedToAustria is an interactive city tour guide that offers two different tours in Vienna and NYC to learn more about Beethoven. It is optimized for the Bose Frames and offers a special 360° sound experience. I was developing and publishing the app for iOS in around three months.
The project was awarded with the Golden Award of Montreux and an EFFIE Gold Award.
I supported the project to develop an e-commerce platform for REHAU US as a technical project lead. In the six-months project (three months on-site in Leesburg, US) I was advising the concept, supporting the coordination with the external development team from India and write automated tests for quality assurance. The project went live in May, 2018.E-Commerce, Consulting, QA
