About Me

Hello again!

I have given a quick introduction in the intro section. Here I want to provide a bit more detail.

Professional Background

I work as a Research Data Scientist at Meta (Facebook). I’m embedded within Privacy-focused software engineering teams to enhance efficiency by utilizing statistical, ML and advanced data analytics methodologies and building data pipelines.

In my previous role, I held the position of Senior Data Scientist at the sports streaming company DAZN. My team was responsible for building, deploying and maintaining various Machine Learning models which ranged from content demand predictions (e.g. viewership count) to models which predicted user behaviour (e.g. churn, re-subscriptions).

Originally, I am from Dortmund in 🇩🇪 Germany. I studied International Business at 🇳🇱 Maastricht University and 🇭🇰 Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and then decided to move into Computer Science through an intense 1-year programme at 🇬🇧 Imperial College London.

Hobbies & Interests

In my free time, I love to do sports. I’m a passionate 🎾 tennis player, but also enjoy playing 🏐 beach volleyball or ⚽ football with friends. I try to go ⛷️ skiing every year and recently started kite surfing 🪁.

I enjoy 🌎 backpacking and have travelled several countries so far (hopefully more to come when the pandemic is over):

  • China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, Mexico, Belize, Colombia, Portugal and Spain

I also like 📚 reading, especially in the mornings before work. Some books that inspired me:

  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
  • The Miracle Morning (I try to follow part of the routine)
