In case you’re curious about me, here’s some more information:
I’m an outside-the-box thinker who looks at things from different angles, and also from uncommon perspectives.
I love to learn and discover new things, and to bring things (and people) from different areas together.
I like a healthy mixture of consistency (which we all need) and of change (which we all need, too).
I can see structures, and put things in a nutshell. And I develop new ideas and creative solutions.
I perceive the whole picture without losing sight of the details – and I deal with details, without neglecting the whole picture.
So many wonderful things happen in my life. Thus it’s important to me to pass something good on to others, in form of information, a new perspective, inspiration and support.
And this is the boring official version: 😉
After my final school exams, I studied linguistics, cognitive science and physics at the University of Freiburg, Germany.
I then got a Ph.D. in computer science (in German called „Dr.“) from Karlsruhe University, my topic of research being „Object modelling for humanoid robots“.
(In plain words, this means: How would a human-like robot recognize a glass or a mug? How would it know to put the glass upside up on the table, and upside down into the dishwasher? And how can we store all this information which is so self-evident to us humans in a smart way inside the robot „brain“, so that said robot can access and implement all the right info at the right time?)
During my Ph.D., I was also involved in teaching at university (seminars, laboratories, some lectures, supervising students, …) and educated myself in didactics.
After my Ph.D., I started to freelance both with services for other people, and with my own websites about various topics. During this time, I learned a lot about marketing, software development, leading a team and working with other freelancers, about websites and a ton of other things.
