Developer / Data Engineer
I did my first step on the path of object-oriented programming at school in 2008 using Java. I was fascinated by the endless possibilities of automation and information processing. During my MSc in Artificial Intelligence, however, in a mostly data-driven modeling environment, I was introduced to the Python programming environment and fell in love.
I ended up training a two-stream CNN for video analysis during my MSc thesis and published my results at the conference ICLR2020 in a paper: Analysis of Video Feature Learning in Two-Stream CNNs on the Example of Zebrafish Swim Bout Classification (Breier & Onken, 2020). All code is available in the corresponding GitHub repository.
What you can expect
When I work on a project, I do it with utmost conscientiousness and integrity.
Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
I am a certified Google Cloud Professional Architect since 2020. Considering that modern data pipelines need to integrate multiple data sources of significant sizes, a data engineer must understand the backbone of data processing in the cloud.
