Johannes Schmidt

My name is Johannes Schmidt, but most people I work with call me Jocho.

I'm currently working as a Ph.D. candidate in the Institute of Numerical Simulation at the University of Bonn.

Besides doing research I am responsible for the IT Infrastructure of the Institute. I lead/coordinate/train a team of 8 system administrators.

The source code of selected projects will be available on GitHub.

Honors & awards



Data Science

As a side project I strengthen my Data Science/Analysics skills to prepare for business analysis jobs as a freelancer.

Software Development

I never worked as a software developer, but I do my best to stay up to date with current best practices of a junior developer using python and C.

Full-Stack Development

July 2022 I started learning about web technologies. I don't see myself competing in the market, but I want to maintain a certain amount of craftmanship in this area. So I build and selfhost some web applications from time to time. Here some references:
