My key research areas include medicine (in particular Obstetrics, Emergency Medicine and Cardiology) as well as aviation. My key activities are situated in our interdisciplinary research project SMART Start. I am also open for topics, discussions and inquiries related to E-Commerce and Quantitative Analysis/Finance/Trading, even though these topics are outside of my core research areas.

If you’d like to discuss any collaboration or thesis ideas in any of these areas, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Outside of my curricular activities, I offer freelance IT consulting and development services with a focus on E-Commerce, Data Science and Business Consulting. You may also find more information about me and my non- as well as co-curricular activities on the respective website.
