  • Python aficionado (both Monty's and Guido's versions)
  • Regex hobbyist
  • Avid musician (piano, drums and percussion, currently playing with the Symphony Orchestra of the University of Applied Sciences in Ulm and the Rock Band of the University of Applied Sciences in Neu-Ulm)

My professional life so far:

  • Studied medicine in Freiburg (Germany), Zürich (Switzerland) and Seattle, WA
  • Worked as a doctor in Internal and Intensive Care Medicine, then switched to Microbiology, Virology and Epidemiology
  • Always loved chasing bugs (microbial and logical)
  • Back to school a few years ago for an MBA in Hospital Management
  • Since 2010: Working as a Professor of Medicine and Health Technologies at the University of Applied Sciences in Ulm, teaching in the faculty of Computer Science (yeah, sounds weird, I know)

If you're interested in a (German) BSc program in Health Information Management, where you'll learn about the intricate connections between IT, management, and medicine, check out our homepage!

Funny StackOverflow achievements:

  • Sole owner (as of July 2013) of the regex-negation badge
  • Winner of the gold Java badge despite never having written a single program in this language. (Being a regex one-trick pony pays off in unexpected ways :))

comment Software support for (board) meetings
This looks interesting. It looks like it might not work for us since all data is stored on a MeetingSense server. Since there are highly sensitive topics and data, management probably won't approve such a solution. I'll check it out in more detail, though - thanks so far!

comment Useful PowerPoint keyboard shortcuts
Also, the knowledge that you just have to rename a *.ppt file to *.pps to make the presentation start right after double-clicking the file seems not to be very prevalent.

comment How do I disable automatic cursor placement in web browsers?
With Firefox, you could try the add-on NoScript and see for yourself if/how functionality is reduced on the sites you use. Then you can re-enable JavaScript on a site-per-site basis.

comment Has Powershell v2 been released?
I found out that a) that download doesn't work with Firefox, it seems to rely on an ActiveX plugin. Plus, you need to uninstall PowerShell 1.0 first which is semi-hard because it's not shown in the Add/remove programs dialog until you check "Show updates" (then it's under Windows)...
