I was born in Hamburg, a typical flat land city with an elevation of about 6 meters above sea level. While not the ideal place for mountaineering and climbing, it is a wonderful city in all other aspects. At the age of fourteen, I started mountaineering in the yrenees at the C.M.N.V.A (Centre de Montagne Nantes Vallée d’Aure). During that time, I also dabbled in basic rock climbing.
When I turned nineteen, I relocated to Munich primarily to begin my studies in chemical engineering, but another significant reason was to have easy access to the mountains within an hour’s drive. During my time in Munich, I also ventured into indoor sport climbing and later took up bouldering. As the years passed, I gradually delved into winter mountaineering and embarked on my first ski tours (backcountry skiing) during winter seasons. Now, I engage in various mountain disciplines, including hiking, wild camping, mountain biking, high-altitude mountain tours, indoor and outdoor rock climbing, bouldering, traditional climbing, multipitch climbing, ice climbing (both mixed and dry), ski touring, and combinations thereof. Additionally, I have recently developed an interest in kayaking.
Initially, my passion for photography emerged as a means to document my mountaineering adventures as realistically as possible. However, over time, my focus shifted towards „real“ photography, where I strive not only to capture moments from my trips but also to convey them in a creative and artistic manner.
Currently, I work as an engineer and researcher at BASF, specializing in chemical reaction engineering. I completed my Ph.D. thesis in 2010 under the guidance of Prof. Lercher at the Technische Universität München (TUM). Prior to that, I wrote my Diploma thesis in the group of Prof. Schüth at the Max Planck Institute of Coal Research and obtained my degree (Dipl.-Ing.) in chemical engineering from TUM in April 2007. Throughout my career, I have maintained a keen interest in informatics, working as an administrator and software engineer for various companies in the computer industry while also pursuing independent projects.
My personal interests in science and engineering, listed alphabetically, include automation, catalysis, combinatorial chemistry, materials chemistry, physical chemistry, simulation and modeling, soft computing (evolutionary computing and artificial intelligence).
