A selection of my work of the past three years. With different types of platforms, I created various applications for professional and research use to optimize and learn about manufacturing processes through modelling and simulation. Additionally I am creating applications for mobile phones in my free time just for fun. Not only do I have a technical background, but also throughout my business studies, I enjoyed working on strategies for example for the non-profit organization Cooking Matters in Omaha, Nebraska.
Simulation Game to Optimize Factory related Energy and Time Parameters
By-Product Exchange Network (BEN) Model - Simulation Model for optimizing Industrial Symbiosis
NumDuel - Android Multiplayer Quiz App (www.numduel.com)
Air Handling Unit - Playful learning for better understanding of machine parameters
Cooking Matters - Linking a non-profit with various local educational programs
Cooling Tower - Simulation Tool to learn about effects of internal and external parameters on cooling towers
Water Treatment Plant - Modular Building of a water treatment plant simulation model to study internal and external parameters
From various student jobs at the university, internships within the industry, to my current research associate position, my focus is on research. Research and especially the idea generating new knowledge is what I love doing.
