Hi! I’m Andreas Kröpelin. I study computational and data science at the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität in Jena, Germany. My undergraduate studies were in bioinformatics, and I am generally interested in the use of maths and computer science to answer scientific questions.

Topics I am excited about

  • mathematical modelling
  • simulations of scientific phenomena
  • machine learning (mandatory…)
  • solving optimisation problems with evolutionary heuristics
  • explaining and presenting science to everyone who would listen
  • fast and elegant scientific computing in Julia
  • building performant and robust applications in Rust

Opinions on some semi-religious questions

I prefer vim over emacs, I use spaces instead of tabs, my curly brackets go in the same line, and I say “die Nutella”. ;)
