Since May, 22 1998 I am developer of the Debian GNU/Linux distribution. This is halfway connected to my job at the Robert Koch-Institute and halfway I do it in my spare time. I started the Debian Med Project and I support the Debian Junior Project.

I have hold several talks about my work in Debian.

Since July, 1. in 1999 I'm working as software engineer at the Robert Koch-Institute. I builded the page for the project "Emerging Foodborne Pathogens in Germany". Currently I am working on some web projects using Zope and PostgreSQL.


I am a physicist and did my diploma at the Martin-Luther-Universität Halle/Wittenberg about "Nonlinear Dynamics of Ferroelectric Domains". When I started my work at the Robert Koch-Institute I continued working on my theses in physics in the field of nonlinear dynamics. In summer 2001 I decided to stop this work because I had the feeling that I should better spend my spare time in working for free software. As a consequence I initiated the Debian Med Project.

You can read more about my education in my Curriculum vitae.

Software Development and Support:

  • I maintain several packages of the Debian GNU/Linux distribution.

  • There are several ethical and philosophical reasons to develop free software. This is discussed into detail by the Free Software Foundation.
