After having studied Computer Science, I first joined IBM Research & Development GmbH where I have held various lead positions in the field of software architecture & development and where I have acted as the head of multiple (university) research groups. Most recently, I have been working for IBM's Cloud division where I was a Program Director (OM) & Senior Technical Staff Member (STSM), primarily responsible for IBM's serverless solution IBM Cloud Functions. In 2011, I was appointed an IBM Master Inventor. In 2013, I became a member of IBM's Technical Expert Council.
At Bosch Research I am part of the research division software-intensive systems where I head teams dealing with (hard- and software) topics such as wired and wireless communication technologies (e.g. 5G), software and hardware (co-)design, especially for purposes such as machine learning (e.g. for deep neural networks), security, privacy, safety, and software technologies, particularly in the context of cloud computing and IoT.
During the last few years, I have been closely working together with different customers across the globe and frequently spoken at international conferences such as IBM Think, the Codemotion Amsterdam and Warsaw, the Cloud Foundry Summit Frankfurt, the GOTO Berlin, the Serverless Conferences in Austin, London, New York, Paris, and Tokyo, and the Serverless Days in Hamburg and Tel Aviv.
