Hi! I'm Dennis, a software engineer based in Switzerland who enjoys building things that live on the internet and also power the internet. I develop highly efficient, scalable and distributed backend systems that power seamless user experiences for the end consumers.
Shortly after graduating from Christian-Albrechts-University, I joined the engineering team at freiheit.com where I developed and successfully launched the Mercedes Benz Mobile SDK. Then I became an industrial PhD candidate and joined OriginStamp in Switzerland to explore peer to peer systems in trustless environments.
Here are a few technologies I've been working with recently:
Where I've Worked
Industrial PhD candidate @ OriginStamp AG
May 2020 - Present in Kreuzlingen, Switzerland
- Work in a micro-service environment powered EBS in the AWS cloud.
- Introduced Terraform as an infrastructure as code solution.
- Introduced Hashicorp Vault as a key managment solution.
- Worked full stack along an Angular PWA, Hugo static site, Spring Boot micro-services, Ansible VM/NAS provisioning.
Some Things I've Built
As part of my work at freiheit.com I built the backend part of the real time event supply for the Mercedes Benz Mobile SDK. A status update of a vehicle (like opening a door) or sending a command to the vehicle goes through my code.
Steganography-based image integrity via embedding Merkle tree nodes into image chunks so that each chunks integrity can be verified on its own. This enables highlighting exactly which areas of a photo were modified which is an improvment over an image-wide "pass/fail".
- Merkle Tree
Participated in a Balloon Experiment for University Students. Developed, built and performed a space qualified experiment on a stratospheric research balloon as part of an official mission from the European Space Agency. Measured the angular distribution of charged particles in the atmosphere.
