I am a computer scientist and mathematician. My academic background is primarily in algorithms, especially in geometry and topology, with links to machine learning and industrial application. My industrial background is in the machine and factory automation industry.
In 2019 I joined the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences to become a professor in the mechatronics and robotics group where I work in the field of industrial informatics.
In 2015–2019 I worked at B&R Industrial Automation, where I built up a team of R&D engineers with a focus on algorithms and mathematics. I was responsible for the PLC software operating the next-generation transport system ACOPOStrak, for which I initially developed the concepts and architectures, mathematical models and core algorithms.
I had a Senior Scientist position at the Department of Mathematics (2012) at the University of Salzburg and I was a Postdoc at Martin Held’s Computational Geometry and Applications Lab (2011–2012) at the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Salzburg.
I finished my Doctoral studies in 2011 at the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Salzburg. Furthermore, I received a Master degree in Mathematics, a Master degree (Dipl.-Ing.) in Computer Science, a Bachelor degree in Mathematics and a Bachelor degree in Computer Science in the years 2009, 2008, 2007 and 2006.
What I cannot create, I do not understand.

Science is what we understand well enough to explain to a computer.
Art is everything else we do.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, a formula is worth a thousand pictures.
– Edgar Dijkstra
Removing mathematics from programming is like turning astronomy into astrology.
