About me

Since August 2018, I am a research associate and doctoral candidate at the chair of Prof. Pretschner. In summer 2018, I was awarded the Master of Science in Informatics (with high distinction) from TU Munich. During my studies, I spent half a year at the lab of Prof. Tokuyama at Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan, as a Special Research Student. I gained practical experience in multiple companies as a working student and intern before and during my studies. I am a passionate participant in hackathons, intrigued by formal methods, and convinced of the importance of equal rights and chances for all people.
