Farewell, Leipzig!

Dear friends,

as some of you already know, last year there were some complications with the extension of my PhD scholarship beyond December 31st. At the same time, I got a job offer from an augmented/virtual reality start-up in Aachen. I spent a long time thinking about all this, weighed up the pros and cons and ultimately came to the conclusion that I had to seize this great opportunity. So for the next two years (at least; hopefully for longer), together with the rest of the fantastic team at bitstars, I’m gonna work hard on making our new platform holobuilder.com a success story. Particularly, I’ll be busy with data analytics and creating a great customer experience. Since I spent almost three (mostly) wonderful years in Leipzig, at this point I wanna thank all the people (in no particular order) who made my stay there such a great experience:

My two co–PhD students
Ricardo and Micha

The SemWeb & friends crew
In particular: Christiane, Steffen, Bernd, Benno, Fred, Steffi, Josh, Henri, Thomas, Manu, AnBo, Matthias, Tomas, Marius, Didier, Sascha, and everyone I forgot to mention here (please insert your name: _________________________)

The best Master student I ever supervised

The Kickers in crew
Phil, Peter, Saskia, Lars, Alex, Marvin, Rubén, Micha, Viet, Di(e) Maria, Javi, Jorge, Hendrik, Kerstin, Dave, Steffen, Hagen, Marco and Lutze

The VSR crew
Prof. Martin Gaedke, Fabian, Sebastian, Stefan, Alexey and Michael

People who do not fit into one of the above categories 😉
Mila, Inês, Majura, Manu, Benny and Aldi

I’m grateful for knowing all of you! See you soon!

So long, and thanks for all the fish
