About me


I am a Computer Science Student at RWTH Aachen University in Germany and have spend a year abroad in Edinburgh, Scotland as part of my studies.

I developed License on Blockchain, a full-stack Ðapp that allows the management of software licenses on the Ethereum Blockchain, including a safe way to transfer these licenses. All source code is available Open Source on GitHub.

I contribute to the Open-Source Swift Compiler by Apple. You can view my contributions here.

In summer 2018 and winter 2019/2020 I interned at Apple's Source Tools team, implementing incremental parsing for SwiftSyntax.

At Macoun 2016, Europe's biggest macOS/iOS developer conference, I gave a talk about the internals of the Swift compiler (in German).
