I earned a computer science doctorate from the University of Karlsruhe (TH) in 2009, then was a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Pretoria. In 2011, I joined TWT GmbH Science and Innovation. At present, I am a lecturer at Duale Hochschule Schleswig-Holstein.
On this site you will find information about my professional and academic work. I am interested in programming languages, software engineering, artificial intelligence, and data science.
I authored the Zhi# programming language – the first object-oriented programming language with inherent support for ontologies.
Also, I support the exploration of the Solar System, the search for near-Earth objects, and the search for extraterrestrial life as a member of the The Planetary Society.
