Research Group Leader
By winning the funding project 'pulsnetz.de' in the program future centres AI of the BMAS I founded the research group 'innovative healthcare' at the institute of informatics called iisys at the University of Applied Sciences in Hof.
Since the summer semester 2015 I support the function of the vice president of teaching at the University of Applied Sciences in Hof. Furthermore, I take care of the continuous development in our quality assurance and our processes in the field of system accreditation, the campus-management-system and the room planning. In particular, I am responsible for the digital breakthrough of teaching (Project DAL) which allows us a continuous development in teaching and which helps to prepare our graduates for the challenges of the digital world.
Since this year I'm professor for 'information and communication systems for operational tasks' at the faculty of engineering sciences at the University of Applied Sciences in Hof. In Addition, I voluntarily represent the interests of research and consultation in the social economy through the professional association of information technology in the social economy and the social administration (FINSOZ e.V.). Due to my knowledge and networks in the social economy, I also work as a company and digitalization/IT-consultant at the ConsultSocial GbR.
Before the work at the University of Applied Sciences in Hof, I was the CEO of MICOS GmbH for seven years. The MICOS GmbH is a software and consultation building with the specialization on health economy. I was responsible for distribution, consultation, product management, support and the development of software. Due to this occupation, I have several contacts in the health economy and still today I am strongly committed in this field, in particular in the subjects of interoperability and Ambient Assisted Living.
After the doctorate I changed to the MACH AG in Lübeck. A company which focuses on software and consultation for public clients, for instance universities in the realm of finances, processes and human resources. Here I was active as an IT-consultant, project manager as well as IT-distribution and authorised representative.
In the course of a twelve year German Army period, I completed a formation as an officer of restoration troupe. Afterwards I studied mechanical engineering at the university of Helmut Schmidt (an university of the German Army Hamburg). After 1,5 years in the work as an officer I did my doctorate at the same university in the realm of an assistance work at the professorship for control technology on the subject of 'A cytotoxicology test method using modern processes of image processing and pattern recognition'. Simultaneously to the doctorate, I developed self-employed software programs for the company Beiersdorf in Hamburg.
