As a photographer, he is interested in light; and as an IT specialist, his Master's degree involves the way light interacts with surfaces and volumes. During a term spent in Scotland, he experienced flying in a glider for the first time. He returned with a host of questions for Technische Universität Berlin on the atmosphere, weather and flight. As a student assistant there, he provided the specialist group on »The psychology of air and space travel« under Prof. Manzey with new ideas and scenarios for the TU flight simulator pilot tests. Following this, he researched a compact model of surface geometry for the »Computer Graphics« group under Prof. Alexa. He is currently writing his Master's dissertation in cooperation with the Konrad Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB) on light dispersion in clouds.
He is furthermore a student assistant on the project »Camera Facialis« which is led by Dr. Martin Grewe. Here he works on models and ambient lighting for digitalisation and measurement of faces and facial expressions in photographic series.
