[10.07.2004] I'm a graduate student at the TUHH in Hamburg, where I pursue a MSc title in Information and Communication Systems, with a focus in Internet applications. Parallel to this, I take part in the Master Program in Global Technology Management at the NIT, a private partner institute of the TUHH. My studies are sponsored by Airbus.

My main interests are on usability, the convergence and technology and processes to support and develop talent in an organization, multimodal applications, and bioinformatics.
