I am a physicist and developer of the education app "phyphox" at RWTH Aachen University. In my free time I create funky projects for my blog at

If I talk about "free time" I mean that time after my day job and family time. When my two kids are asleep I just have to make things. I guess, people call that a "maker". Although, in recent projects there has been a weird obsession with old gaming consoles, and the Game Boy in particular.

Oh, and what is my day job? Well, after getting my PhD in solid state physics in 2014 I developed the app "phyphox" as a side project for an introductionary lecture at the RWTH Aachen University. It provides access to the device's sensors to act as a measurement device for experiments in physics education. Shortly after we published it in 2016 it quickly became rather successful, eventually giving me the opportunity to take a permanent position at the RWTH Aachen University with a focus on technology in physics didactics. But that's not why I am at the 37C3 this year...
