Curriculum vitae

I have studied Computer Science and Business Administration (Diplom Wirtschaftsinformatik) at the University of Mannheim in Germany and have received my Master's Degree in December 1996. During my studies, I stayed four month in Barcelona in Spain for an internship abroad.

Since 1997 I'm working as a research associate in the Computer Science department of the University of Mannheim where I've completed my Ph.D. Thesis in Computer Science in June 2001. My Ph.D. project was founded within a DFG priority program.

After finishing my Ph.D thesis, I worked two month as an invited guest researcher at Bell Laboratories in the USA.
