About me


I work at Apple's Source Tools team, making developer tools like SourceKit-LSP and SwiftSyntax.

Previously, I interned twice with the same team and was a Swift Compiler Open Source contributer.

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

I studied Computer Science 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.
