About me

I am professor for IT architectures at HAW Hamburg since 2013. My research focus lies on enterprise architecture management, business process management, and the way in which organizations manage the digital transformation, both from a technical and an organizational perspective.

Current Projects

  • Intelligent Support for Knowledge Intensive Processes (industry transfer)
  • Digitization for Optimization of Facility Operation (industry transfer)
  • HOOU Enterprise Architecture Management (funded by the HOOU initiative)

Topics for Bachelor and Master Theses

Of course, there are always open topics for bachelor and master theses in all of my research areas, sometimes in cooperation with enterprises, sometimes in the context of one of our running research projects, and sometimes just for curiosity.
