My professional life so far:

  • 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 (since May 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 :))
