Dr. Adam Nielsen from Berlin
I did my PhD in math. I was working in the field of medical drug design and published a bunch of scientific papers like The Monte Carlo errors, Markov state models and molecular alchemy and Computing the nearest reversible Markov chain.
I finished as best in class and received a scholarship from Berlin Mathematical School.
My core life project is a coaching website which currently has almost 10.000 active users. It is a project that I founded with my parents. It started when I was a teenager, simply because my father was convinced that I can create websites, because I knew how to press the "OK" button on windows dialogs. The website is build with Laravel/Vue/Tailwind. I maintain this page now over 20 years. After finishing my PhD in 2016, I decided to go all-in into web development to expand this life project. I am currently doing a full redesign of this page, as the current design is made from stone age.
The art of Math is asking the right questions. I feel that this is the same with web development. On StackOverflow, I have reached over 20k points with my profile. From my posts, 60% are questions. I have reached over 7.5 million people with my questions and answers. Especially with ChatGPT, I feel like the skill of asking the right questions has become more important then ever.
In my free time, I try to develop my skills in character design. Throw any book about character design in my direction and I probably feel the need to buy it.
My sister Lilli has an amazing retail store in the hip center of Berlin. Check it out at Pony Hütchen.
