I’ve recently moved to India from Germany. Previously, I was working in Berlin as the Head of ML Engineering for Zalando SE. I'm an experienced tech leader in the fields of data, analytics and machine learning / artificial intelligence systems at different company sizes. I've worked in deep tech (Verisign, Inc.), consumer tech (Zalando SE and Craftsvilla.com), and consulting (Gramener.com).

I have a strong academic computer science and mathematics background and am deeply passionate about philosophy, micro- and macro- economics, markets, game theory, quantum physics, world history, anthropology, culture, and psychology.
