About me

I am a computer scientist and researcher based in Braunschweig, Germany. Moreover, I am the professor for “Software Services for the Circular Economy” at Clausthal University of Technology (Germany) and part of the Institute for Software and Systems Engineering. My research focuses on the Circular Economy, the Machine-to-Everything Economy (M2X Economy), distributed and decentralized systems, and digital identities.

In 2020, I was awarded the Klartext Preis 2020 for an article that I wrote on the topic of my Ph.D. thesis (The M2X Economy – Concepts for Business Interactions, Transactions and Collaborations Among Autonomous Smart Devices). You can find the video (Link) and the text (Link) online
