Lukas Kawerau

Data Engineer, Writer


After my PhD at the Graduate School of Decisions Sciences, University of Konstanz, working in the Communication, Networks and Contention Research Group lead by Prof. Dr. Nils B. Weidmann, I worked as the Head of IT at the documenta and Museum Fridericianum gGmbH in Kassel.

As a side-project I’m currently building plenarbot which is a Retrieval-Augmented-Generation chatbot which lets you chat with the plenary protocols of the German Bundestag.

This site hosts all my writing on data engineering and machine learning and everything else that interests me. I love exploring productivity, history and how technology is changing and how that changes our lives in the process. I’m particularly interested in using technology and systems design to understand and improve our lives and work.
