About Me

I am a Master's student at University of Zurich, studying Informatics. I am currently finishing up my Master's Thesis on the topic of Robustness in Federated Learning, with just the defense left.

After discovering Firebase, I developed a passion for learning all things cloud. I completed all Coursera courses in the Professional Cloud Architect pathway, and am now studying for the certification exam.

In my free time, I enjoy learning new things, collaborating with others, and creating more and more ambitious games.

As a lab tech in SCU's Imaginarium, I had many responsibilities. I collaborated with professors on interdepartmental virtual reality projects, like Latin VR (short article here) and a 4-dimensional grapher (video demo here). I also helped students on their own VR projects and taught the basics of VR-development to students and professors alike.
