About Me

Software solutions and the processing of data are an essential part of almost all areas of life and work and cannot be implemented without systematic engineering of the associated processes. As a professor for smart service systems at the Mittweida University of Applied Sciences, institute director for Digital Service Systems at the IFDT - Institute for Digital Technologies Leipzig I and managing director of the consulting and software house GFDT - Gesellschaft für Digitale Technologien, I work as a researcher, expert, developer and innovator on the design of digital living and working environments.
