Since 2015, I am working as a Professor of Data Management at the University of Applied Sciences in Lübeck. Moreover, I am engaged in the Information Systems study program at the Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein in Kiel. Please don't hesitate to contact me, if you are interested in computer science related studies and a strong cooperation with industrial partner companies in Lübeck or Kiel.

I am teaching subjects of practical computer science such as Software Engineering, Data Management, Programming, Web/Mobile Technology, and Cloud Computing.

In the last years, I have supervised a variety of student theses with software engineering related subjects. Please contact me if you are looking for supervision of your thesis.


My research interests include:

  • Data Management and Analytics
  • Software Architecture and Performance
  • Social Software Engineering
  • Web Technology

Self-Adaptive Performance Monitoring for Component-Based Software Systems (PDF) is the title of my dissertation at the Kiel University from 2012. Related research work can be found at Google Scholar or dblp.


As team spirit motivates, I have played soccer in several outstanding teams.

I live with my superb family in Melsdorf near Kiel in the north of Germany, just between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. Our sunshine kids have been born in 2011 (Julie) und 2013 (Mitja).


Travelling broadens your horizon. I love to get out.
