My major during my studies of computer science was pattern recognition, esp. automatic speech recognition and prosody. In this field there is no patent remedy for a given task. Every job needs to construct special solutions for the inherent problems. My work experiences as student assistant researcher, during my studies and master thesis at the chair for pattern recognition require this ability to do the job efficient and good.
I additionally focus on the classical computer science subjects operating systems and algorithmic languages (programming languages and their compilers). As minor I choose medicine. After serveral years of working in Unix-environments, I am familiar with Linux (Solaris, HP-UX), shell scripting and programming.
