About me

About me

I am currently an interim full professor for practical computer science at the University of Koblenz-Landau – my alma mater. I am temporarily on leave from my position as head of the group ‚Requirements Engineering and Conceptual Design‘ at paluno (The Ruhr Institute for Software Technology) at the University of Duisburg-Essen. My current focus of work lies on methods and processes for the design of software-intensive systems, in particular of highly-automated cyber-physical systems. Over the last years, I had several leading positions in large-scale research, development and technology transfer projects. I am also working as a consultant, trainer, and assessor in the privat sector for large companies as well as for small and medium-sized enterprises and international industry bodies.
