1st Prize and Best Of Category at Intel ISEF 2019!



Fatal Error!
Fatal Error!


Being a finalist at the International Science and Engineering Fair 2019 hosted by Intel in Phoenix, Arizona was an experience like no other. Every year, about 1800 students from all around the world compete at the Intel ISEF, being the world's largest pre-college science competition.


I am so honored to receive the following prizes:


  • Best of Category Award in the category of Embedded Systems

  • 1st Award in the category of Embedded Systems

  • Special Award by the American Meteorological Society (2nd Award)



Plus, a cash prize of $1000,0 will be awarded to the Megina-Gymnasium Mayen (my high-school), as well as Jugend forscht (my national science fair).

The MeginaSat Project Trailer is out now!



Doing my best so that we can launch our Cubesat into orbit next year.

Another award I received at the "Jugend forscht" national science competition was the Europe-Prize, including the opportunity to participate at the 30th European Union Contest for Young Scientists 2018 in Dublin, Ireland.


The whole event was an astonishing experience. Especially the opportunity to connect with other very interesting and talented people from all around the world made it absolutely unique. Also, I am honored to receive a Special Donated Prize, sponsored by the ESA.

At an internship at the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, I developed and operated a watt balance from the ground up. It is based on the LEGO watt balance, initiated by NIST. For further project details, visit my project page: GitHub project page

"Jugend forscht" nationwide competition

Fatal Error!

Recently, I presented my research project "Particular Raindrop Analysis for Better Weather Forecasts" at the nationwide youth science contest "Jugend forscht" at the Germany-wide level in Darmstadt, Germany.The competition was sponsored and organized by Merck, with an outstanding level of detail and carefulness.

I'm honored to receive the first prize in the category physics and also to be given the opportunity to take part at EUCYS 2018 and compete against other youth researchers at European level!

"Jugend forscht" state competition

Fatal Error!

Recently, I presented my research project "Particular Raindrop Analysis for Better Weather Forecasts" at the nationwide youth science contest "Jugend forscht" at state levelin Ludwigshafen, Germany. The contest was not only a great opportunity to network with other outstanding researchers, but also an interesting composition of entertainment and science.

I'm honored to receive the first prize in the category physics and also to be given the opportunity to visit the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Research in Heidelberg in July!

For a few months now, I am working on a compact weather measuring device. But that is only a minor aspect of the whole concept:

As everybody knows, weather forecasts are not overwhelmingly accurate often times. Especially a reliable precipitation forecast is mandatory for the agricultural sector and, of course, the ordinary individual. For this reason, I am searching for the precipitation forecast error's origin and am trying to further minimize this error by putting it in perspective with known factors like temperature or wind-direction and -speed.

In other words, the goal is to find relationships like "If the wind is blowing from NW and it is faster than 10 km/h, it is more likely that it will rain" (simplified scenario).

You probably already guessed it - an artificial intelligence is best suited for crystallizing such patterns. By iterating over collected data, it can be trained and then be used to generate an enhanced weather forecast.

But in order for a customer to use this system, it somehow needs to be conscious about how much it actually rained at the user's residency. For this reason, the WeatherNode is introduced: A tiny but powerful weather station that monitors the local weather and sends the data to a centralized server network, where the enhanced weather forecast will be calculated and eventually transmitted to the user. If you want to learn more about the current data acquisition system to investigate the feasibility of this concept, you can learn more on the Project Page.

We just began 3D-printing some of the cubesat's fundamental frame parts:



The reason for this is that we are able to develop a feeling for the composition as a whole of the parts before eventually milling them.
