Software Engineer

10/2011 – 02/2016

PhD Student (thesis) Mathematica Python

Theory group, Max-Planck-Institute of Quantum Optics

In the quantum information theory group of Prof. Ignacio Cirac, I worked on quantum foundations, in particular conditions for quantum behavior in macroscopic systems. Some of our results were covered by phys.org. Earlier, I worked in the field of quantum magnetomechanics, where we proposed experimental setups using superconductors to observe quantum behavior of massive objects. I obtained my PhD from LMU Munich in January 2016 with high honors.

During my time at MPQ I gave several seminars, the slides can be found here:

Co-founder C++11 Rails Go Ember.js

univedo GmbH

I co-founded univedo, where we develop a novel solution for managing business data. Univedo uses a community-driven schema to integrate data between different apps and enables the simplification of complex business processes. Our platform is the basis for the industrial automation system evomecs.

B. Sc. in physics (thesis)

LMU Munich

After early studies in computer science (at TUM) and physics (at LMU Munich), I completed my bachelor's degree at LMU.

09/1999 – 06/2009

Abitur (thesis) C++


During school I skipped the 1st, 8th and 10th grade, studied computer science and physics and worked as student research assistant at three different institutes. For my final thesis I received the thesis prize of the German Physical Society.
