I’m a software engineer focused on applied machine learning and distributed systems.
I tackled projects within computational neuroscience, machine learning, distributed computation, as well as computer linguistics. I love all things data science.
I worked at the Mercator Research Group (Structure of Memory) on hippocampal functions (dentate gyrus). As a member of the Institute of Neuroinformatics (Computational Neuroscience), my research focused on feed-forward properties of the visual cortex in primates and avians. I graduated from Ruhr-University Bochum.
I am an outspoken advocate of personalized medicine, gene-editing, democratizing technology, and a moderate, transhuman approach to policy-making. I’m a self-taught (ex) stock trader, recovering perfectionist, and psychology enthusiast.
Jenny Holzer’s Truisms keep me healthy.
A while back, I did a bit of photography.

Markow [mɑ:kɒf] is the German transliteration of Andrey A. Markov’s surname.
