107/120 points in the 2014 internet based toefl test.


Finished level B1 (= intermediate level) in France.


Work in process, I am about to move on to B1.


Currently working with python for my thesis. I am using pytorch and tensorflow.


Finished implementing a ray tracer in pure Java consisting of more then 5000 lines of code.


I wrote about 5000 lines of fortran code for my scientific software project using a wide array of compilers such as GNU-Fortran, Intel-Fortran and NAG-fortran.


I have used Matlab extensively for scripting. My biggest Matlab project so far was for the iGEM competition.

Programming Skills

I am Moritz, working as a research engineer with the Fraunhofer center for machine learning. This is an interactive CV. It includes a map charting the parts of the amazing world of applied mathematics I have been able to explore so far. Source code of selected projects is available at Github. An exhaustive list of my research work is available at GoogleScholar.
