I'm a software engineer at Google working on the personal search team. My focus is on user understanding and personalization in Google Now. Previously I also worked on personalization in the new Google Maps and feature development on Google Books and Google Play.
Prior to this I founded Zinepal, a simple web service to create custom eBooks and printable PDFs from web content. I also worked at two startups in the bioinformatics and medical device fields.
I was born & raised in Germany before moving to Victoria, BC where I finished high school and attended the University of Victoria. After university I spent a few years in Vancouver and now live in San Francisco.
