Bio Sketch

I was born in 1973 in Leer, Germany. I visited the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität in Münster for studying Information Systems (in German: Diplom Wirtschaftsinformatik) from 1993 until 1999. My focus has been applied computer science (Praktische Informatik) and my diploma thesis was entitled „Entwicklung einer graphischen Benutzeroberfläche für ein http://www.corba.org/ CORBA-basiertes, flexibles Workflow-Management-System“ (in English: „Development of a Graphical User Interface for a CORBA-based, flexible Workflow Management System“). From 1999 until 2001, I worked as a software developer for ERP-Systems at the Schleupen AG, Moers, in the domains workflow management, order management and accounting, storage management and financial accounting. To mention one highlight, we cooperated with the  Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität for building a data warehouse for our software. From 2001-2007, I was a research assistant and PhD-Student at the Business Process Technology Group of Prof. Dr. Mathias Weske. My activities at the research group are listed below. I wrote my dissertation about modelling quality aspects for services, see below.
