The Plesse castle near Bovenden

Why Bovender?

Bovenden is the place where I grew up, which makes me a 'Bovender'.

Bovenden is a small town in Germany (pop. ~8k), just north of the city of Göttingen in Lower Saxony.

I am a nephrologist (kidney doctor). After graduating from school, I studied medicine in Marburg and Lübeck, with stints to Dublin, Truro (Cornwall, UK), Richmond (VA) and St. John's (Newfoundland). I've worked at the university hospitals in Lübeck, Frankfurt, and Würzburg, I'm now employed at Mainz University Hospital.

I've been using 'bovender' as my internet nickname for quite some time now. This is the name that I brand my coding projects with.

Warum Bovender?

Bovenden ist der Ort, in dem ich aufgewachsen bin – folglich bin ich ein Bovender.

Bovenden ist ein sog. "Flecken" (Marktort) mit etwa 8000 Einwohnern im Kern-Ort. Es liegt im schönen Südniedersachsen, direkt nördlich von Göttingen.

Nach dem Zivildienst habe ich Bovenden verlassen, um in Marburg und Lübeck Medizin zu studieren, mit Abstechern nach Dublin, Truro (Cornwall), Richmond (Virginia) und St. John's (Neufundland). Nach den Universitätsklinika Lübeck, Frankfurt am Main und Würzburg arbeite ich jetzt als Internist und Nephrologe in Mainz.

Den Namen Bovender verwende ich seit einiger Zeit im Internet sowie inzwischen auch als Alias für meine Programmier-Projekte.
