At the age of 6, I always answered the question regarding my future profession: "I want to become a full professor of theoretical physics." Although I did not know what it meant, it sounded great to me. :)

Since then, my interest in physics has hardly changed. During high school I did experiments in a laboratory for pupils at the department of physics of the Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin, building up a modification of the Michelson-Morley-Experiment to measure extremly short length differences. I presented the results in front of other pupils.

In the 10th grade we had to do some work experience. I chose to work three weeks at a laboratory preparing materials for experiments in physics.

I finished high school in summer 2007, graduated in Physics in summer 2012 at the Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin, and finished my PhD in nano-physics in 2017.

Besides school I used to practice rowing in the pupils' rowing club. Now I do body building regularly.

I took piano lessons for 8 years. Today my favourite music are epic soundtracks, for example by Hans Zimmer.

Another hobby of mine is the development of computer programs. For example, I created - as a learning-by-doing project - the browsergame Army-Wars.de. I also worked out programs for a fund advisory enterprise and websites for scientific conferences. Within my research for the PhD I developed a data evaluation and management software for scanning probe microscopy data: SpectraFox. It is available for free to other scientists.
