I am grateful to Microsoft Research Cambridge for funding my studies under their PhD Scholarship scheme. I am equally indebted to St John's College Cambridge who are supporting me through a Benefactors' Scholarship. I am also a member of Hughes Hall.
Before starting my PhD, I spent a few months in Saarbrücken (Germany), doing a research internship at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics (D5). Previously, I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Information Systems (Wirtschaftsinformatik) from the University of Regensburg and a Master's degree in Advanced Computer Science from the Computer Laboratory here at Cambridge.
Oh, and I'm originally from East Bavaria close to the Czech border – which is where the photo to the right was taken. It shows me pursuing one of my favourite leisure activities: hiking and exploring the landscape around me. My further interests include languages, politics, meteorology, sports and learning to play the piano. I also still enjoy spending time in my hometown Weiden and the region.
