Biography

I am a Senior Build Engineer and Tech Lead of the Build & Release Engineering team at Luminar Technologies working on a monorepo build system, developer tooling, and release automation.

I am passionate about software engineering and the creation of scalable code, which is maintainable over time. Currently, I am teaching these principles at TUM to undergraduate students by offering the Software Engineering Lab.

I studied Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) for both Bachelor and Master. From 2016 to 2018, I was a Software Engineer at the Objective Software GmbH and Luxoft Inc and worked in cooperation with the BMW Group in the area of Automotive and Autonomous Driving. From 2019 to 2022, I worked at the Chair of Media Technology at TUM as a Research and Teaching Associate in the research group of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Eckehard Steinbach, where I received my Engineering Doctorate in 2022. My research at TUM was focused on video processing, compression, and transmission of multi-camera systems for autonomous and teleoperated driving. In 2022, I was a Senior Software Engineer at CareX.AI working on the software architecture and quality of our monorepository-based codebase. My research at CareX.AI was focused on camera-based vital signs measurement.
