I'm a tech enthusiast, software engineer, passionate Arch Linux user, and I like building and contributing to open source projects.
I currently work for Catalyst in Wellington, New Zealand, where I create software.
In my free time I enjoy photography, tramping, rock climbing and working on my numerous private projects.
In the past I have worked as a researcher at the Institute for Information Systems at the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence in Saarbrücken, Germany. Being part of the Business Integration Technologies group, my research focused on recommender and decision support systems. My work included a fair amount of software engineering, creating complex server applications with Java EE.
Also I'm a fairly recent graduate with a Master's Degree in Business Informatics from Saarland University in Germany. In my master thesis I worked on optimising business processes. I developed a test bed for evaluating recommender approaches aimed at providing operational decision support, and analysed how real-time process analysis, utilising both local process information and global contextual information, can improve the actual process execution.
