  • 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), Z├╝rich (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 :))
