I am working as a researcher at the Institute for Data Science, Engineering, and Analytics (IDE+A) at TH Köln in Germany.

My current research focuses on ‘Missing Data Methods’ and ‘Imputation for Sensor Time Series’. I am also interested in machine learning, time series analysis, artificial intelligence, anomaly detection and data compression 🚀. Which I have been working on in my years at R&D of Bosch and at TH Köln in industrial research projects.

As a big enthusiast of the statistical programming language R, I maintain multiple R packages. Whenever possible I try to make research work available for others as an easy-to-use package to build on (see Software).

When I am not occupied reading or working on my computer 📖, I really enjoy doing sports. I like running, bouldering and track & field athletics. Just recently I finished my first triathlon. Sometimes I also join local races and competitions - mostly with the goal of reaching the finish line 😃.
