About me

Summary

Born in February 1991, I have studied Bachelor of Science in Physics (with minor in Astrophysics) part-time for 4 years at the University of Zurich and University of Bern, and am a professional software developer with over 10 years of working experience.

Apart from writing code, astronomy, astrophysics, and space exploration are some of my biggest passions. Photos, which I take with my telescope, can be found under “Astrophotography“.

Also, I love to tinker and have a few smaller private projects that I am working on using a self-built 3D printer. There are also a few programming challenges I picked up on my GitHub account (like a multi-threading enabled simulation framework, or an advanced discord chat bot for astronomy, see the Projects page).
