Moritz Wolter

I am Moritz, an engineer currently finishing my doctoral thesis at the University of Bonn computer science department. 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. The navigation bar above contains links to showcases of interesting projects I have done. Click on any of them to dive deeper. Source code of selected projects is available at github. An exaustive list of my research work is available at GoogleScholar.

Language Skills
German - Mother tounge
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.
Programming Skills
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.
