At the university I worked on magnetic properties of small sized particles and so entered the great world of software development:

- communication software for retrieval of data from spectrometers

- numerical analysis of Mössbauer spectra and other measurement data (non-linear curve fitting, genetic algorithms, numerical integration)

- graphical representation of measurement data

After finishing my studies I decided to stay in software development and joined URW, a German company that was famous for their premier quality fonts and graphical software. I worked on an application for commercial art called "Signus".

In 1995 I joined StarDivision and had the great pleasure to be a part of the team that created the first version of StarOffice. When Sun took over Star Division in 1999, I became a Sun employee. When the OpenOffice.org project was started I became the Project Lead of the Application Framework project. I was heavily involved in the development on the framework API and the extensions infrastructure we built upon it.

Then I got more and more involved with the Writer project and became its project lead in November 2006.
