Hello! I'm Jürgen

Here, you can find details about my professional career as computer scientist and my personal interests.

About Me

Since 2002, I have served as a software engineer for enterprise companies, where I have been recognized
for developing innovative and robust products for globally deployed software and systems.
Over the years I have mainly worked on embedded systems, all from driver programming up to application layer systems.

I am also personally interested in all kinds of scientific, philosophical and technical innovations.
Following the scientific community in questions around AI/ML and their applications in cancer and longevity research is really exciting.

Sports is also on my agenda as compensation and I play Tennis, do weight training and endurance sports like jogging and rowing.
I am also a somewhat passionate chess player, so if you dare to challenge me for some blitz games -> lichess
Me and my family live in the beautiful south of Germany where we can see the Alps on sunshine days 🙂

Below is a brief overview of the topics for which I have professional experience,
as well as gained knowledge through personal interest and study.

Theory & Paradigms

  • Algorithms & complexity, with special focus on sequences
  • Functional paradigms: functors, applicatives, monads & transformers, reactive streams, tag-less final
  • Usual OOP knowledge like the ‘Gang of Four’
  • Personal interest: Category Theory(up to Yoneda Lemma so far), Differentiable programming


  • Methods: Deep and Reinforcement Learning, random forests, data normalization, hyperparameter tuning
  • Tools: R, Tensorflow, Weka
  • Python: NumPy, Pandas, Scikit
  • Personal interest: Open-endedness, Quantum machine learning


This is the language where I have the most professional experience.

  • Standards: C++98, C++11, C++14, C++17
  • OOP & functional design patterns
  • Template metaprogramming in C++11 & C++14
  • Boost
  • Reactive programming & streams
  • Functors & monads
  • STL study & usage
  • Applications in embedded environments where time and space are constrained
  • Toolchains: VS, gcc, clang


Since I know formal languages and parser theory, all languages are the ‘same’.
Below is just the list of languages which I worked with the most.

  • C/C++, Asm
  • JVM: Java, Kotlin(with special focus on Arrow), Scala
  • Python
  • Haskell, which is, amongst others, of huge help for C++ metatemplate programming

Tools & Environments

Below is a non-exhaustive list of tools and OS, which I have been working with in the past.

  • OS: Linux, Windows, QNX
  • Enterprise tools: DOORS, Jira/Confluence, Yammer, Windows Office Suite
  • Dev tools: Git, Gerrit, SVN, Perforce, Eclipse, CLion, VSCode, IDEA, Vim, LaTex, LLVM tools, Make
    Cmake, Ninja, Maven, Gradle, gcc, gdb, clang, Valgrind
