About Me

I’m currently working as a Senior Machine Learning Engineer at Sennder in Berlin, cracking interesting problems in the road-freight logistics space. In my free time, I enjoy exercising (gym, yoga, dancing …), reading and trying out new things. Sometimes I will also blog about things that interest me, revolving around topics in tech, machine-learning, economics and sports.

You can contact me through Twitter or email - firstname at thisdomain dot com

I enjoy reading a lot and think that books are the most effective medium to learn new things. Find below a list of some books I have recently read and (mostly) liked. Perhaps you will as well.
