I am master student at the RWTH Aachen University. My specialisation is Machine Learning. I recently started a new job opportunity at Aldi Süd International IT in the department for Master Data & Integrations Platform. Furthermore, I complete my own projects as well as projects for my clients next to my work and studies. Please view my experiences for my portfolio.
During my time at the Institute I developed a variety of skills. I learned Python from scratch and created my first full-stack web-application. I got used to the topics Internet-of-Things, Autonomous Driving and Electric cars. This knowledge helped me with my other projects at university and future jobs. Please view my top three completed projects during my time at the Institue.
Together with the research team traffic psychology & acceptance I created an alogorithm to match the eye focus to screen coordinates in order to algorithmically decide whether the driver is able to take control over the car.
In the course of the digitalisation process of the institue I developed the employee UI to buy a coffee and the employer UI to see the coffee balance of each employee. I set up the necessary Backend Server with a MySQL database to store the employees coffee balance.
Together with the research team for thermodynamics I created an alogorithm to adjust the in-car temperature automatically based on inner- and outer car sensor values. I therefore connected a vehicle control unit to the CAN-bus of the vehicle to read and set the necessary values..
Languages: Python, Linux, Bash
Together with my supervisor Jörg Christian kirchhof I developed a vehicle-fleet management system for a large car manufacturer as well as a variety of Internet-of-Things specific Domain Specific Languages. I got used to the topics Internet-of-Things and Domain Specific Languages. I also learned the process of software development in a larger team. Please view my top two projects during my time at the Institute.
As topic of my bachelor thesis "Reliable Internet-of-Things-devices for vehicle-fleets with unreliable Hardware" I developed the part of the software which runs in each vehicle of the fleet. The software was able to read out data from the vehicle and send important information to the backend in a reliable way.
Together with my supervisor Jörg Christian kirchhof I created a DSL with the purpose of making IOT deployment easier. I created the necessary grammars, implemented JUnit tests and started setting up a master/slave architecture for the deployment process.
Languages: Java, C++, Montiarc, Monticore, Maven, Docker
During my Bachelor's degree I had to accomplish two major software engineering projects with other students in a team. While completing this projects I learned a lot about software development in a team and social skills. I also learned Model-driven Engineering and the programming language C. Please view my two major projects during my Bachelor's degree.
During the Software Project Internship I developed together with 30 other team members a fully working Industry 4.0 factory. In this process we created several use cases with different roboters that communicated together with a from our team developed REST Api.
Languages: Java, Montiarc, Maven
During the my studies I developed together with another student a basic but fully working operating system with the programming language C. From scratch we created tasks such as scheduling, heap management, interrupts and I/O. For more information click here.
Next to my specialisation Machine Learning I created an Artificial Intelligence to predict S&P500 stock prices. I used the TensorFlow framework to build my models. My models were LSTM's. I also learned visualisation techniques to show and interpret my model's results.
Languages: Python, Tensorflow
This was the realisation of my first business idea. With the frontend framework Angular I created a beautiful and easy to use platform to get an overview about all fitness groceries in the market. With Python I created a crawler to fetch the necessary data from the manufacturers. With Express/NodeJS and MongoDB I created the backend. Because of third party restrictions I could not publish this website.
Languages: Angular, Python, Express, NodeJS, MongoDB
My current project involves the development of a hybrid app with the framework Flutter. The app should be the platform for travelers like me to share their best street foods with each other. The backend is completely realised with Google Firebase.
Languages: Flutter, Google Firebase

Apart from my studies, my work and my personal projects I love to learn. My motto of life is "constantly learn and grow" (Bodo Schäfer in his book "Gesetze der Gewinner"). I believe strongly that success in life comes with constant learning. How I learn? I read lots of books and love to accumulate all books I read in my personal library. I read all kinds of books that bring me further in life. Examples are from Dale Carnegie "How to win friends and influence people" or "Seven habits of highly effective people" from Stephen Covey. I also learn with online courses on Udemy to develop my skills in software engineering. A list of courses I already finished can be found in Awards & Certifications.
Next to learning and reading I love to do sports. My favorite types of sport are football and Fitness-Bodybuilding. I play football since I am young and just love the smell of the grass and the team spirit you develop over a season. But what has shaped me the most the last two years was Fitness-Bodybuilding. I fell in love with this amazing sport. When you want to be successful in gaining muscles and look great, you need to develop important skills that bring you further in life as well. For example you need to be disciplined in your eating and training habits. Also, you need to always have your longterm goal in mind. Lastly, you need to go over the point which hurts the most in order to make your muscles grow. Further benefits I experienced with Bodybuilding is that you are more healthy and therefore more productive. Also, you look better and are more confident.
My last big hobby is travelling. In October 2019 I started my Erasmus exchange to Edinburgh in scotland. To go out of your comfort zone and find your way in a foreign country and culture inspired me heavily. Another benefit of travelling for me is to meet amazing people, improve my language, see beatiful landscapes and most important taste the best Street Food in the world. This is also the reason why I started developing an app to share Street Foods with other travellers. I also made a world trip this year 2020 starting in Asia and ending in Canada. Unfortunately, because of the Coronavirus I was forrced to fly back to Germany.
