About me

From September 2010 through December 2020, I was head of the group ‚Requirements Engineering and Conceptual Design‘ at paluno (The Ruhr Institute for Software Technology) at the University of Duisburg-Essen. Furthermore, I was an interim full professor (W3) at the Institute for Software Technology at the University of Koblenz. The main focus of my work was on methods and processes for the design of software-intensive systems, in particular of highly-automated cyber-physical systems (CPS). Over the last years, I had several leading positions in large-scale research, development and technology transfer projects. I am an elected full member of the International Requirements Engineering Board e.V. (IREB) and was vice chair of the IREB Council from 2015 to 2019. Currently, I am working as a system architect in the e-mobility field within the Schaeffler Group.
