Study group advisor

Faculty of Science, University of Southern Denmark

2012 - 2015

Students at Faculty of Science at the university are assigned to study groups with designated study group advisors during their first semester. In this role, I taught computer science students cooperative learning every fall semester for the last four years of my studies.

During the last semester of my master's studies, I worked as a teaching assistant for the introductory programming course at the department. Here, I taught the fundamentals of object-oriented programming in Java for first-year students.

IT developer

Knowledge Lab, University of Southern Denmark

2010 - 2014

At Knowledge Lab I provided IT solutions on-demand for the small research center. Most of my work involved deploying and maintaining CMS-systems (mostly Drupal) for various research projects, tech support and various conference work.

Teaching assistant

CUDiM, Aarhus University

2010 - 2014

As a personal teaching assistant I worked as a long-time mentor for several younger computer science students with various learning disabilities. Through one-to-one sessions, I supported them at their individual level with the everyday challenges they face that most students do not.

Co-founder

2012 - 2013

I founded a tech startup with two of my co-students to build a learning management system for around 800 students at University of Southern Denmark. Features of the system included announcements, room booker, course information, textbook marketplace and an interactive campus map.
