Professional Information

I am currently a guest researcher at the Department for Applied Software Engineering of Technische Universität München (TUM).
For four years (2001-2005), I held a a full-time research assistant position here.


  • Project Manager and Coach of Global Software Engineering (GlobalSE) projects (20-50 students developing a prototype in teams on Mac OS X) STARS?, TRAMP, ARENA.
  • Leader of IT Group (ITG) of our Chair, maintaining 20 Mac OS X lab computers and supporting 20 PowerBook users
  • Coordinator of Notebook University Initiative at TUM
  • Member of Information Technology Online (ITO) project, developing multimedia Software Engineering course material for the Master's program of Information Technology at Universität Stuttgart
  • Manager of macintum, the Apple Competence Center of TUM


In high school, I wrote a paper about Douglas Adams, it's been on my homepage ever since.
