Portrait

Lennart Behme

Hey, I'm Lennart - a first-year PhD student and aspiring data scientist at the DIMA research group and BIFOLD Graduate School, working with Prof. Dr. Volker Markl and Dr. Jorge-Arnulfo Quiané-Ruiz. My research focuses on Federated Data Analytics, exploring ways to build end-to-end analytical pipelines in federated and collaborative settings. Prior to my PhD, I completed an Information Systems Master's degree at TU Berlin together with the Data Science and Engineering specialization track. In my Master's thesis, I analyzed and proposed techniques to improve data loading in deep learning pipelines.

I discovered my passion for data science during an internship at Bosch, rethinking my department's approach to financial reporting. The internship motivated me to dive deeper into the topic and pursue a Master`s degree with a focus on data science, after having a general focus on the consulting industry during my Bachelor's degree. Within my PhD studies, I now have the opportunity to dive deep into federated data science and advance the state of the art. As a result, I combine solid business skills in consulting, project management and leadership experience with an increasingly profound technical expertise and a passion for data.

My continuous drive to learn has been a key factor in advancing both my academic and professional career. Along with a genuine curiosity on a broad range of subjects and rapid comprehension, I have fostered a deep understanding on topics I have been in touch with. More importantly, I look forward to new skills to acquire and opportunities to explore.
