I am Thomas Reinbacher, Earthling, European, Austrian - A technologist at heart with a business mindset, currently fascinated by the Internet of Things (IoT)., Threema ID 8WTF7XHA

I grew up in a lovely region in Austria called The Weinviertel (taste a glass of Grüner Veltliner if you go there), but also lived in other amazing places including Vienna, Berlin, Mountain View, Munich (currently), Stuttgart, Istanbul, NanJing, WuHu, HangZhou, and BeiJing.

>Computer scientist. Early in my life I got infected with the magic of electronics and computers. Everything started out with a couple of garage-made electronic projects like a mp3-capable car radio. Eventually, I became a computer scientist and came up with a new analysis technique for embedded real-time systems. I enjoyed collaborating with some truly inspiring researchers and held visiting scientist positions at RWTH Aachen University and at NASA Ames Research Center. I graduated sub auspiciis praesidentis with a PhD in computer science from Vienna University of Technology.

>Asia fanatic. I lived in China for about two years where I got fascinated by the beauty of the Chinese language and culture. I studied Mandarin at ZheJiang University in HangZhou and worked for a supplier for the automotive industry in NanJing/Wuhu. This website stores some essays that I wrote; hopefully those are useful for other Mandarin learners out there.

>Management consultant. In 2014, I joined the global management consulting firm McKinsey & Company where I am an Engagement Manager based in the Munich office. Most of the time, I help McKinsey's clients on business questions around the Internet of Things (IoT).

I hope you enjoy the site! Thomas
