“Martin is not only one of the most talented engineer I was lucky enough to work with, Martin understands product and pro-actively suggests ideas for growth and engagement.”

Frédéric della Faille, founder and designer at Checkthis/Frontback

I am a computer science PhD turned into web/mobile developer by the love of code. What I love about programming is solving people problems while creating things out of thin air.

I have an extensive experience bringing software products from concepts to production, as well on the backend or as an iOS or Android developer. I also know my way around Javascript frontend quite well.

I am currently a freelance project lead working for Bluesquare.

I am active on lots of web communities, most importantly:

If you are looking for information about the research that I did during my PhD, your best bet is probably Google Scholar but you can also find some information on my old university homepage

    3. analyse (and export) the collected data in a dedicated data science environment
