I was born in Berlin. From 2006 - 2009, I conducted a dual bachelor program (Information Systems) in cooperation with a pharmaceutical company in Berlin. During that time, I spent one practical semester at the company's location in New Jersey (USA). After my bachelor studies, I started the master program in Information Systems at the Humboldt University Berlin, where I also worked as student assistant with focus on BPM. Thereby, I conducted several process redesign projects in hospitals in Germany and in the Netherlands. My master thesis focused on the development and the validation of a redesign framework for the healthcare domain consisting of heuristics about how healthcare processes can be changed.

Since April 2012, I am research assistant at the chair of Business Process Technology at HPI.
