What I work on

Software projects


  • 2015 SpenDB, a light-weight web tool for analysing and visualizing government financial data.
  • 2014-2015 grano, a social network analysis toolkit for news applications.
  • 2012-2014 dataset, easy-to-use Python library for data processing using relational databases.
  • 2012-2015 nomenklatura, an entity management tool that provides easy ways to integrate, clean and query datasets.
  • 20102-15 OffenerHaushalt, visualization of scraped German budget data on the federal, state and local levels.



Many of my projects require that I keep up-to-date copies of various public datasets. These are often scraped, or additional information had been added to facilitate analysis. Below is a collection of resources I'm re-publishing because they are significantly enhanced compared to their source form.
