About Me

I'm a PhD Student in the Programming Languages Group at the Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz under the supervision of Sebastian Erdweg. I received my Bachelor's and Master's degree in computer science at TU Darmstadt in 2015 and 2018, respectively. I currently focus my research on making Datalog a more user-friendly programming language. Other interests include incremental computing, domain-specific languages, and functional programming.
