I am the head of the team Scientific IT-System at Peter Grünberg Institute / Jülich Centre for Neutron Science, which are institutes at Forschungszentrum Jülich, a research centre in Germany.

Our profile and fields of activity are described here.

The design and development of visualization systems has been an essential part of my activities over twenty years. I got started with Python about ten years ago.

In October 2012 I had my first talk at a Python Conference (PyCon DE 2012). I had the impression, that people were very interested in our GR Framework.
