Hi there!

I am a PhD student in the Molecular Biomechanics group of Prof. Dr. Frauke Gräter at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS). I study the chemistry of collagen under physical stress using computer simulations.

I very much enjoy thinking about mental models and teaching concepts and focus on data analysis with the programming language R. Have a look at my current courses here. Being a mentor on the online Data Science Learning Community enables me to help new R and Python users and I enjoy the challenges that come with solving the diverse set of problems from the many fields that these users come from.

Lately, I have been writing a bunch of lua, since it is the language used both for plugins of the code editor neovim and the quarto computational document system.

My academic interests are balanced out by theater projects with the Drama Group of the Anglistics Seminar of Heidelberg University.

You can also find me on YouTube, where I publish content about Neovim, Quarto and Data Science. For example, check out my video on getting started with Neovim:
