I am a computer scientist, team lead, and software developer.

I earned a computer science doctorate from the University of Karlsruhe (TH) in 2009, then was a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Pretoria. Since 2011 I am with TWT GmbH Science and Innovation where I am head of Data Management, Portals & Processes.

On this site you will mostly find information about my academic work. I am interested in programming languages, software engineering, artificial intelligence, and data science.

I authored the Zhi# programming language – the first object-oriented programming language with inherent support for ontologies.
