jonathan felix darius scherpenbach


My name is Jonathan. I’m 20 years of age and currently reside in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. I’m currently studying at Johann-Wolfgang-von-Goethe-Universität for a bachelor’s degree in mathematics. I’m especially enthusiastic about (Bayesian) stochastics, statistics, optimization problems, machine learning and (non-standard) analysis. Additional interests of mine include chess and programming, the latter since the age of 9. My rating on lichess is 1450 classical, 1700 tactics and 1650 on chesstempo tactics standard. My favorite opening are the Scotch and Hyper-Accelerated Dragon. I occasionally play for SC Bad Soden. My favorite chess masters include Magnus Carlsen, Levon Aronian, Vladimir Kramnik, Hikaru Nakamura, Ding Liren, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Garry Kasparov, Robert James Fischer, Mikhail Tal and José Raul Capablanca.
