I'm a PhD in Computer Science working as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Konstanz at the Chair for Algorithmics. I'm a mathematician by training and a self-taught data scientist doing research mainly in the field of (social) network analysis. More specifically, I work with measures of network centrality, or the question of who or what is important in networks. You can find more on this topic in the network analysis section of this page. A list of my publications can be found on google scholar and my CV can be downloaded below.
I am an active Science Slammer, mostly slamming about networks in various contexts. Some of the materials can be found in the network analysis section. So far, I participated in 6 Science Slams (2x winner, 1x second, 2x third) including the southern german championchips. Three of my slams were recorded. Click below to view the videos (in german)
As my landlady once said: "Science never sleeps!". The little free time I have, I mostly try to learn new skills that might come in handy at some point at work. So far, I focused on data scientific tools and data visualization, web scraping and a tiny bit of machine learning. I usually experiment with new tools on my personal blog, a playground for not so scientific questions. If you havent explored it yet, go check it out by clicking on the link below.
