Hi! I’m a data analysis enthusiast with a background in applied physics, luminescence dosimetry and optics. I love to investigate, discuss and improve measurement techniques and I’m happy if I can spent my days buried deep in R, C# and Python code. My biggest contribution to the world of science so far, was my role as one of the engineers behind the lexsyg research system.
