Master Thesis

In February of 2016, I finished my master's thesis at TU-Berlin.

Title: "Predicting the Development of Financial Markets by Applying Machine Learning Tools to Social Media Data"

The thesis has received a grade of 1.3 ("very good") and is available here.

While working on the thesis, I wrote the Python package "TwistML", which is available at PyPI and BitBucket. TwistML is a package that makes it easier to work with raw twitter data for machine learning tasks, like predicting changes in the stock market.

During this time I acquired a lot of experience working with Python and many different machine learning methods and tools. In particular I worked intensively with the Python packages "scikit-learn", "numpy" and "nltk".

Bachelor Thesis

I concluded my dual studies of business computing with a bachelor's thesis entitled: "Developing a standardized user interface for internal use at Deutsche Post IT-Services utilizing the Windows Presentation Foundation". During this time I was able to acquire valuable skills working with Visual Studio, Microsoft .NET in general and the Windows Presentation Foundation in particular.

The thesis was graded 2.0 (considered equivalent to ECTS "B").

I cannot make the full thesis publicly available here, as it was created internally at Deutsche Post IT-Services.
