About Me

I am currently studying at the TUM Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. In 2024 I got accepted into the BMW Fastlane Scholarship Program, which offers Master students unique opportunities to explore the BMW Group and different areas within BMW. In 2021 I got accepted into the Global Engineering Education Exchange Program. This enabled me to go abroad to the University of Florida (USA). In 2019 I graduated with a Bachelor degree in Management and Engineering at Technical University Munich (TUM) with main focus on Electrical and Computer Engineering. I spent 5 months abroad at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada. During this time I focused on Computer Engineering and International Trade. 

Currently I am working on two programming-projects at HIO-Fitting GmbH. The first one is about the digitalization of the production process and involves programming an iOS-application and structuring a real-time database. The second one is about programming and distributing a sales application for business-customers.

In my bachelor thesis I dealt with the integration of machine learning and IoT into the supply chain of companies.

In my free time I enjoy playing golf, football and skiing during the winter months. I am also playing in the golf team at TUM and played football at UBC.

Project Mediport:
Creation of an easy to read and interactive report, which a doctor (specifically dentist) can generate automatically from the patients data, directly out of the patient management software. The aim is to empower the patient, give him more health awareness and therefore cares more about his health. This should lead to lower costs for health insurance companies, because preventing health issues is cheaper than curing them.
