[Research Areas & Interests]


From August 2009 I was working as a research assistant at the University of Technology Vienna, where I finished my PhD with distinction in June 2012. I studied the diploma program Applied Mathematics with a focus on Computer science (first Dipl.-Ing.) and the master's program Computational Intelligence (second Dipl.-Ing.), which I finished both with distinction in November 2007 and April 2009, respectively. For my second degree I studied at the Pavol Jozef Safarik University in Kosice, Slovakia in the summer term 2008, where I also had the opportunity to gain an advanced level of Slovak language skills. Furthermore, I studied at the City College of New York in New York, USA during the winter term 2008.

During 2007/08 I had the honor to participate in TUtheTOP - the high potential program of the TU Vienna. During 2002/03 I did my civil service (called Gedenkdienst) at the Auschwitz Foundation in Brussels, Belgium.

During my spare time, I like to travel a lot, work with kids as a Scout leader at my Scouting group in Bruck/Leitha, as well as geocache. I am currently organizing a youth event called RoveR KnocK in Bruck/Leitha. I also like to play the piano and I am interesting in learning new languages. Besides my German mother tongue, I speak English, French and Slovak fluently.
