Steffen joined the team in autumn last year to support with backend and further development of the optimization algorithm kerith’s magic is the result of. By choice (and heart), Steffen is a physicist with a special interest in leveraging his skills and knowledge to work against climate change. What impresses upon that is how he coordinates his work for kerith and sporty activities while progressing with his master thesis in atmospheric physics and transport processes (magic again). The whole team is very much looking forward to asking him this question in person very soon.
