Career objective

Driven by my curiosity and the desire to help people I have worked on a very broad range of
topics from particle physics, via general relativity, to ocean modelling. I am now eager to get
into the field of machine learning / AI, because I believe that this is the field with the greatest
impact on the future of our civilization and I wish to contribute to making this impact a positive
