I'm Thorben, a software engineer and researcher with an interest in AI-based application development.
Currently, I am working at the Data Engineering and Machine Learning group at the University of Münster, Germany. Here, I also earned Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Information Systems. In addition, I hold a Master's degree in Big Data Systems from the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, Russia.
I am passionate about developing novel applications. For instance, I'm currently exploring a deep learning-based remote sensing approach to efficiently census non-forest trees globally, which would allow to study their role in mitigating degradation, climate change and poverty. Previously, I have developed a web application to synthesize full-cast audiobooks from fiction, or an R package to understand the decision-making of machine learning models.
