From 2001 to 2004, I was a research assistant and Ph.D. student at the Chair for Applied Software Engineering of the Technische Universität München.

 

 

Research Interests

My research interests included distributed service software architectures, adaptive middleware, context-aware computing and augmented reality. My Ph.D. advisor was Prof. Bernd Brügge, Ph.D. My thesis was on A Decentralized Adaptive Architecture for Ubiquitous Augmented Reality Systems, and involved in the augmented reality project DWARF.

 

Projects

Professional

As an engineer at Siemens Corporate Technology, I work on software architectures for distributed interactive systems. One project with a public web site is SmartSenior, featuring an Intelligent Watch for Comfort and Safety, and a Smartphone Supporting Safe Dialysis at Home.
