I was introduced to OpenStreetMap in the early 2010s as a Bachelor's student in Geography. Since then I have completed a Master's degree in Geomatics and work as a research fellow and GIS developer at the European Institute for Energy Research in Karlsruhe, Germany. I work with OpenStreetMap data frequently and have a great interest in analyzing it as a bountiful data source.
