What I do

I work as a research associate and PhD student in computer science education at the University of Münster. I am a member of the Committee on European Computing Education (ACM Europe/Informactis Europe). In the group I work on our tutor training program. Read more.

I am a Salsa and Kizomba dancer and instructor. I do a lot of professional development and travel to many international congresses to improve my dancing and teaching. I teach regular local classes and give workshops on congresses and smaller events. Read more.

For fun and recreation I work on several personal software projects (Read more). I like flying RC helicopters, did half-hearted attempts to become a glider pilot and play some music. I also used to be a sailor and windsurfer. My attempt to stay in shape involves running, swimming and a gym.
