About me

I am a developer and consultant with professional experience in web development and data science, hailing from Germany and currently living in Frankfurt am Main. I am passionate about new cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence or the blockchain and the question of how to embed them in user-friendly interfaces.

I have done projects for a range of different companies and organizations - in the last few years I've also acquired considerable experience in differenct projects within the financial industry.

My educational background is rather diverse and I always look for opportunities to learn. My favorite projects are those that require me to push beyond my boundaries.

When I'm not working, I like to travel or play the guitar. In the past I have been part of several bands.

I developed a cross-platform, GUI-based tool for the technical analysis of stocks. The analyses are based on a proprietary algorithm helping to predict future stock developments. The tool conducts the analyses for a large number of stocks, generates customizable graphs and allows to export the results in various formats.

I worked for two years in a large-scale, agile web project of Commerzbank as part of a team responsible for the maintenance and further development of the CMS FirstSpirit.

Extended Nearest Neighbor (enn)

I implemented the recently proposed machine learning algorithm Extended Nearest Neighbor (enn) in Python. The algorithm constitutes an improvement to the widely known k-Nearest Neighbor (knn) algorithm. The implementation is compatible with scikit-learn and available as an open-source Python package.
