“Without Data, you´re just another person with an opinion.” – W. Edwards Deming, Data Scientist
My main academic interests lie in system dynamics and statistics. I wrote my Bachelor’s thesis on agent based models and the possible emergence of intelligent behaviour in them following the underlying principle of “Future State Maximisation (1)”.
When I am not in front of my laptop, my hobbies are art, crafts and cycling. I will buy a new curtain, and spend 2 weeks painting the whole thing because it was looking too boring. The only reason I am ever going to IKEA is, to take measurements of the things I want, so I can build them myself at home (and the vegetarian hot dogs). Most sunny days I am out in the park, sketching or spending time with friends. Cycling has always been the least annoying form of physical activity for me, and helps me recenter myself in times of stress.
