After completing my master's thesis on facilitating student communities through gaming, I had the opportunity to write a paper about the topic. My paper titled "Campus Explorer: Facilitating Student Communities through Gaming" was accepted at this year's IADIS International Conference Game and Entertainment Technologies. It is available in the IADIS digital library.
My paper "bRenderer: A Flexible Basis for a Modern Computer Graphics Curriculum" was presented at Eurographics 2017 as part of the Education Program.
In the context of the computer graphics lecture at ETH Zurich, I implemented a path tracer (based on the Nori framework). To demonstrate the features we implemented during the semester, a contest was held among the about 50 students taking the lecture. This year's theme was "Once Upon a Time" and my render, showing a hand modeled ruin in front of a forest, was ranked second.

Our game "A Drone in the Dark" won this year's audience award at the ETH Game Lab. The prize was sponsored by Microsoft and consist of an Xbox One including four controllers. Many thanks!

The human race is soon to be extinct and the only way to preserve our heritage is to discover new planets. Yet it is still impossible to travel at light speed and no living being could ever arrive at the only place suitable for humans to survive and within reach for a spacecraft.
Therefore, scientists send the human genome on its long journey to a small moon called “B12”, where people are born and raised by machines. Yet life on B12 is not what they expected it to be ...
For my history class I created a small history museum about the most important events of the 20th century. This way, students can explore history in a gaming context making it more fun and interesting at the same time.
In the context of my final project for high school, I just finished "Schneckentempo". It is a short film about a biker who is diagnosed with a fatal illness. Unfortunately, there is no English translation available.
