Started working for the cryptocurrency startup Worldcoin, backed by Sam Altman and operated by Max Novendstern, Tools for Humanity Corp., San Francisco. Designed and implemented the audio experience and sound engine for the hardware devices that will be used to distribute the new currency.
Launched the online platform MasterBus.ai for producers to master their music online. As a hobby project, the platform receives rather irregular updates. A few successful releases mastered through MasterBus.ai have already been published, such as by Austrian ESC contestant Nathan Trent or German rappers Luis and Edo Saiya.
Completed my three year dual-study course at the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT and Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University Stuttgart. Explored a wide range of tech stacks and conducted research on object-based spatial audio and AI-driven signal processing. Published four papers on my findings and was granted one patent for object-based audio mastering.
Completed my quarter abroad at the University of California San Diego. I’m thankful for the unique experiences and encounters on campus – above all I’ll always remember Prof. Peter Powell’s ‘Peterbook’ project and Prof. David Quarfoot’s Statistics jokes. What a magnificent time!
