A winding path

My name is Michael Dirnberger and I have been passionate about following my interests and making my own luck all my life. This drive put me on a remarkable path marked with challenges, hardships and constant change but also resulting in meaningful personal and professional growth.

Here are some of my essential experiences and learnings so far:

  • Obtaining my diploma in Theoretical Physics at KFU Graz taught me how to do hard things and meet high standards routinely.

  • Obtaining my PhD in Computer Science at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics taught me how to persist and how to think, learn and work with scientific precision. Either alone or as part of a Team.

  • Working as a Senior Data Scientist at KPMG Lighthouse taught me how to manage customers, colleagues and budgets.

  • Founding k33 Experts and later joining Tagading continues to teach me how to shoulder responsibility for everything and how to realize a personal vision of success as an entrepreneur.
