My name is Timo, I am a Software Engineer living in Zürich, Switzerland. I work for Google on the machine learning models behind their on-device music recognition services.
I am self-employed at Denk Development where I create custom software and hardware solutions for customers. Most of the time that involves microcontroller programming.
In my leisure time I like to 3d print and occasionally work on artsy projects. Besides that I learn piano and violin, and do some sports: playing ultimate frisbee and road cycling are my favorite activities.
An overview of my recent projects is given at blog.timodenk.com.
I am occasionally publishing articles at timodenk.com/blog.
