I received my MSc degree in Photonics and Computer Vision from the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, Germany, in 2016. In addition to my studies, I worked as a scientifc software engineer for S[&]T in the Netherlands. As an undergraduate and graduate student, I also provided first aid and life support to people during my assignement as Emergency Medical Technician for the German Red Cross.
