5 questions to Alexander Seeliger

What was the last song you listened to?

Currently I can’t get „Where are you now“ by Lost Frequencies out of my head. Otherwise my musical taste ranges between the extremes of classical music and metal😊

What are you known for at BARC?

For my affinity for snacking, I guess. It’s easy to tempt me out of the office with treats.

What TV series would you recommend?

I can’t decide…in my data science seminars I like to quote from the series “Connected: The Hidden Science of Everything” with Latif Nasser, as it impressively demonstrates that data is the connecting element between everything and that we cannot understand our environment without it.

How did you come to join BARC?

Carsten asked me to join BARC at a MeetUp and I said yes😊

If you could meet any person living or dead, who would it be and why?

Carl Sagan, because he had a significant influence on the transfer of knowledge in the field of astronomy and is still considered a role model for many here, even after his death, who carry the knowledge of our universe into the world. Astronomers, by the way, are the most amazing data scientists, generating impressive insights from truly flawed data.
