Currently I work for the institute of Software Technology of the German Aerospace Center where I am the head of a Sustainable Software Engineering group as well as vize head of the department of Intelligent and Distributed Systems.
I studied computer science at the university of applied science Bonn-Rhein-Sieg with a focus on bio and medical informatics. Next to my studying I worked for the Fraunhofer institute SCAI in the field of image and data mining.
After working for a short while as a software developer in an agile operating company, I went back into research. I started working for the university of Bonn in a joint project with my former Fraunhoer institute. The project was called OpenPHACTS, was in the field of the Semantic Web and was finances by the EU.
After moving to Berlin I started working for my current employer, the DLR. Here I share my knowledge about software engineering and open source with my researcher colleagues and show them how to integrate software engineering in their day to day work.
In my free time (as well as in my profession) I organize conferences like deRSE, FrOSCon, PyCon.DE, EuroPython und ProvenanceWeek.
