    I've programmed an open source RCP application called "OpenChrom" as part of my PhD thesis. OpenChrom is suitable to evaluate chromatographic, mass spectrometric data and therefore focuses on end users like scientists and chemists. I've studied "Wood science and technology" at the University of Hamburg. I've specialized on pulp and paper chemistry, in particular in process analytics, chromatography, mass spectrometry and data evaluation. I've also passed the exams SCJP (CX-310-065) and LPIC-1 and NCLA.
