About me

Hi there! I’m an electronics and computer science enthusiast currently studying Electrical Engineering & Information Technology at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). To keep me busy while not on campus, I like to work on my own programming projects. Once and a while I like to attend Hackathons. Hackathons are 4 – 48h events where you work as a group to make an idea become reality. This usually involves lots of coding and little sleep. 

I volunteer at the Polytechnic Society Karlsruhe (www.pvka.de), an academic student organisation that promotes personal growth and further education outside of one’s field of study. 

Starting in my 2. Semester I worked as a student Research Assistant at the Intelligent Process Automation and Robotics Lab (IPR). Here I became familiar with the Robot Operating System (ROS), as well as CAD and FEM software. In addition, I worked with many different hardware ecosystems, implementing peripherals and transmission protocols on many different microcontrollers. 

I just recently finished my Bachelor thesis on capacitive shear force sensors for applications in robotic grippers, and am now preparing for a 6 month internship in the USA.
