Since April 2015 I am working as a researcher at the Fraunhofer Institute of Optronics, System Technologies and Image Exploitation in Karlsruhe. My expertise are in the field of “3D Reconstruction” and “Structure-from-Motion” as well as “Data Visualization” in 2D and 3D.
I have obtained my Masters degree at the University of Stuttgart, studying Computer Science with a focus on Computer Vision and Visual Computing, as well as Service Computing. The topic of my Master Thesis was the development and investigation of a near real-time approach for “Structure-from-Motion”.
During my studies I have additionally worked as a part-time student assistant at the University of Stuttgart Visualisation Research Centre. I have supported the institute by means of software development and the implementation of visualizations.
I have acquired my Bachelor degree in IT-Engineering at the DHBW-Ravensburg, a Cooperative State University. The dual studies contain a practical apprenticeship at a partner company, which in my case was Cassidian, an EADS Company, in Friedrichshafen. The focus of my Bachelor studies was on Network- and Software Engineering.
Between my graduation from School in 2008, and the beginning of my studies, I worked for one year as a volunteer at the West Rand Lutheran Community Church in Johannesburg, South Africa. I mainly supported the congregation in their Youth and Childrens Minestry. My Voluntary Year of Social Service was supported by the Weltwärts program of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
