About Me

Hello! I am Oliver. I am a medical doctor and software engineer.

You can contact me via e-mail.

Three-Sentence Bio

I started coding when I was twelve even though it’s quite a stretch to call writing hacky php code coding. Wanting to have some purpose in life I ended up becoming a doctor. However I also wanted to build things so I got back into coding while doing MRI research for my doctorate thesis.


I did quite some radiology research for my doctorate thesis, mainly with Matlab.

At some stage, I was intrigued whether masturbation had an effect on our behaviour, specifically, our mood, energy and libido. Quite obviously, this is a problem which can be solved with an app, so I developed an app together with my friend Chris: NofApp. (Note: I think it’s not visible in the US Play Store any more due to some trademark voodoo - use a VPN or ask me for a demo).

I worked as a React Native developer for phellow seven developing an app for patients to view and manage their Electronic Health Records.

While figuring out what to do with my life, I developed a dating app called Philter which lets you filter (get it?) people close by based on your answers to yes/no questions.

Nowadays, I’m a big fan of Clojure. Chances are you’ll run into me at one of the Clojure Berlin meetups.


I currently work at Merantix where we develop medical software (what a coincidence!).
