About Me

Hi! I am a Software Engineer and Computer Science Researcher. Currently, I am working as a postdoctoral researcher at the University Hospital in Bergen where I am working with Digitization in Pathology. Concretely, we are applying techniques such as Process Mining, Optimization, and ML/AI to gain insights about Pathology workflows and in the long run reduce response times via intelligent utilization of resources and scheduling of activities.

Previously, I had been conducting research on Software Interoperability and Consistency Management while being employed as a PhD research fellow at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (HVL) where I successfully defended my PhD on the 9th of February 2022. My thesis openly accessible here.

Before coming to Norway, I have had positions as a software engineer at different companies in Germany.

Research Interests

My research interests span various domains of Computer Science and Software Engineering. One of my main goals is to turn theoretical research results into practically relevant tools and methods in order to improve the quality of software products. My focus lies on the following areas:
