I'm 23 and live in Dortmund, Germany where I'm a master student of computer science at TU Dortmund University.
My main interests are science, computer science and politics (see below), also space exploration, history, philosophy, city and traffic planning.
My main interests are science, computer science, education, politics (see below), podcasting and making. But I'm also interested in city and traffic planning, space exploration, history, philosophy and pretty much anything to some degree. I love learning and exploring new stuff.
I'm chairman of the [student body](https://fsinfo.cs.tu-dortmund.de/fsr/start) of the computer science faculty at my university and I participate in the [FOSS-AG](https://foss-ag.de).
From 2018 to 2020 I was the chairman and now I'm responsible for the finances of the [student body](https://fsinfo.cs.tu-dortmund.de/fsr/start) of the computer science faculty at my university. There I participate in the [FOSS-AG](https://foss-ag.de).
I enjoy cycling, my main means of mobility is my e-bike. Mostly with my girlfriend and sometimes with my parents or other people I do [Geocaching](https://www.geocaching.com), an outdoor game using GPS where one solves puzzles and other stuff to find hidden boxes called "geocaches".
Moreover, as a computer geek I'm of course into computer games as well, mainly strategy and management games like [Cities: Skylines](https://www.citiesskylines.com/), [Europa Universalis](https://www.paradoxplaza.com/europa-universalis-all/) or [Stellaris](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stellaris_(video_game)). Apart from that I'm fond of simulations like [Kerbal Space Program](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerbal_Space_Program) or [Elite: Dangerous](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elite_Dangerous). These two games are where I mainly got my liking of astronomy, space exploration and rocket science from.

I not only enjoy making podcasts (see above), but I also listen to them.
I also like photography, mainly landscapes, streets and architecture, and also computer graphics (see below). When I'm somewhere with enough wind, I love kite flying.

My special interests lie in the fields of functional programming, lambda calculus, type systems, formal languages and grammars, programming language design and theory, category theory and algebraic/inductive/recursive data structures.
One of my key passions is teaching and explaining the things I learn. I work as a tutor at my university, I sometimes do talks for the [FOSS-AG](https://foss-ag.de), where I also organized a workshop about functional programming. I'm currently organizing a bigger [workshop about functional programming (in German)](https://tix.oh14.de/fuprowise20/) for fun.

I enjoy the practical stuff as well: programming (preferably functional), Linux, server administration, continuous integration, data/communication security and free/libre and open source software in general. I administrate a home server (which this web page runs on) and write software for fun, most of it openly available under free licenses.
