Bio

I started with my profession in IT quite early by visiting a high school with a special branch of study in Information and Communication Technology. After my military service in 2003, I went for my studies in Information Technology in major Net and Software Technology to University of Cooperative Education in Karlsruhe. During my pratical phases I worked in different departments of SAP in Germany and Singapore. In 2006 I finished my studies with my diplom thesis about "Detecting Fraud Patterns Using Data Obtained from Application Platform" written at SAP Research in Brisbane/Australia. After my studies I joined SAP's Custom Development group and established a development team in Bangalore/India. In 2008, I moved on to SAP Consulting where I work in topics as Process Integration/Process Innovation combined with software products from Business Intelligence and Mobility. Since July 2011, I am a research assistant at the chair of Business Process Technology at HPI. I worked in the research project PIGE that was about process intelligence a fusion of Business Intelligence and Process Management. My research field is about event processing in BPM targeting on manually executed business processes.

Research Interests

Process Intelligence in Non-automated Process Execution Environments

Process Intelligence describes methods and technologies to monitor and analyze business processes based on process execution data. The topic is well explored in automated process execution environments that are controlled by process engines, but needs to be discovered for manual executing process environments, such as in healthcare, as well.

This leads to particular research topics of:
  • event capturing in manual executing process environments
  • event processing (correlation, abstraction, aggregation, normalization); further information to our Event Processing Platform can be found here
  • utilizing business process models for process monitoring and analysis
  • business process monitoring and analysis UIs
