Engineer | Minimalist | Paramedic

About

The scientist describes what is; the engineer creates what never was.

Theodore von Kármán
Hi, I'm Rob, a German electrical engineer and computer scientist with wide-ranging experience in digital signal processing, machine learning and AI. Currently, I develop radar-based driving automation systems for Bosch and work part-time as a paramedic.
One may say I'm a minimalist, in the sense that I live a deliberate life and tend to devote my time and money to gathering experiences rather than accumulating stuff. Besides coding, I love the outdoors, travelling, snowboarding and bikepacking to other countries.

What I do?

I have a particular passion for discrete mathematics and coding, which has made me gravitate towards computer science in the past few years.

Skills & Personal Achievements

I have worked in fields such as robotics, medical engineering, digital systems design, and autonomous driving, where I was able to gather a wide range of experience in engineering and software development.

A sound mathematical background, analytical thinking, and solid programming skills form the basis for my work. Beyond the daily office routine, I like to challenge myself personally while working part-time as a paramedic.
