I'm involved in computer science since the mid 80s. Beginning from the late 1990s I've traveld around Europe as an IT consultant and I worked for DAX30-companies through all branches.

Since 2011, I am a member of the scientific staff of the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences and I'm working with students in industrial engineering, business informatics and business administration. Applied sciences and research in the field of industrial production from the IT persepctive have been the focus of my work for many years. Since 2016 my focus has been on OpenStack, since 2022 (until 2027) I have also been working on a research project 5G campus network with StarlingX and Magma - both from end of 2023.

About me: I'm mid 50 years old, located in Meppen, Germany. I'm married and we've got two children. I studied business informatics during the mid 1990s in Dresden, Germany. Out of my office I volunteer as a coach in rowing and handball sports.
