Biography

I am an R consultant working in Zurich, CH. My area of expertise is is in the area of applied machine learning, more specifically in the field of environmental modeling. I am also familiar with DevOps applications (Docker, Terraform, Ansible). Besides, I am also undertaking a PhD at the GIScience group at the Department of Geography at University of Jena related to environmental modeling.

In my spare time I like to develop programmatic solutions to simplify todays data science challenges. My standard is to work in a reproducible manner and also actively promote this philosophy in my daily work. Furthermore I enjoy writing about the Linux world, the #rstats community and other technical topics that I find interesting.
