Bio

I studied Software Systems Engineering at the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) from 2003 to 2008. During my undergraduate studies I spent one semester abroad at the Ecole d’Ingénieurs des Technologies de l’Information et du Management (EFREI) in Paris, France. Focusing on the field of process modeling in the graduate program at HPI, I wrote my Master's thesis in cooperation with the SAP Corporate Research Group in Brisbane, Australia.

Since May 2008 I have been a research assistant at the chair of Business Process Technology. My research interests include process modeling languages and methodologies. In particular, I focus on the application of formal methods in BPM and challenges resulting from different abstraction levels in process modeling.
