Trying to escape local optima on a random walk through life. Home / Contact

Hi! I’m Niklas, an open-minded and curious computer science/math student at TUM in Munich, Germany.

Studies & Research

I’m really interested in the foundations of things. Thus, I have a strong interest in mathematics and fundamental branches of theoretical computer science, like set theory, abstract algebra, category theory, logic and formal systems.

Regarding the more practical topics of computer science, I like both: the abstract ways of functional programming, as well as low level hacking in C.

Recently, my interest in machine learning and data science has started growing, so that’s what I’m mostly experimenting with nowadays.

Professional

Together with three friends of mine, I’ve founded newcon GmbH, a software company. We wanted to put our skills to good use and build great things as a team, so that’s what we’re doing now. These days, I’m mostly out there building product while trying to steer the company in the right direction. Check out Bus+, our first product!

Other interests

I consider myself an autodidact, so in my free time, I like to learn and try many different things. I also get really passionate about projects I start.

I try to make space for at least some physical activity daily, currently that’s mostly Calisthenics and running. Hit me up if you’re based in Munich and want to start a workout together :)

I also like to read quite a lot; you can find a list of books I’ve enjoyed on my Goodreads account. Got a favorite book I might enjoy?

If you’ve got any questions, please feel free to mail me, I’d love to hear from you!
