Bio

Born in 1983 in Meißen, I have been studying Software Systems Engineering at the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) at the University of Potsdam, from 2003 until 2009, receiving both, my Bachelor's and Master's degree. During my studies I have spent one term as an exchange student at the University of Jyväskylä (Finland) and another six months as a research intern at SAP Labs in Palo Alto (USA). Since May 2009 I am research assistant at the Business Process Technology group at HPI.

In October 2013, I successfully defended my thesis on "Searching Business Process Models by Example".

Research Interest

Data Structures and Algorithms for Efficient Search in Process Repositories

While process model repositories have gained increasing attention recently, support for efficient search towards similarity, querying, or compliance checking, on several dimensions, i.e., structure, behavior, and resources/artifacts, has been largely neglected. Solutions may be derived from the field of information retrieval, which offers valuable insights, such as Nearest‐Neighbor search, based on optimized data structures, e.g., indexes, and algorithms.

Currently, this yields particular interest in:
  • indexing techniques for feature rich spaces, e.g., vector spaces, metric spaces
  • similarity and distance measures for business processes, based on structure, behavior, and resource/data object perspectives
  • work addressing identification of corresponding nodes in a set of graphs/process models (with regard to, e.g., linguistic, similarity of labels)
