I am leading the Digital Strategy and Innovation division at Avaloq Evolution AG, a leading fintech in digital banking and wealth management.
Prior to that I was a senior consultant at BCG Platinion, a company of The Boston Consulting Group, and prior to that at Capgemini where I have gained broad project experience across the sectors banking technology, consumer goods, insurance, building technology, and automotive, with a special focus on artificial intelligence, transformation programs, and program management.
Before moving to industry, I pursed a successful academic career, first as an assistant professor at TU Clausthal and later at TU Delft, one of Europe's leading technical universities. I conducted research in the areas artificial intelligence, intelligent systems and verification, producing around 60 publications.
I am a member of the board of directors of the European Association for Multi-Agent Systems and have organized and chaired several international events.
I hold a habilitation in Computer Science, a PhD summa cum laude (Dr. rer. nat.) and a Diploma with honors in Computer Science. For my scientific achievements I received international awards, including the International E.W. Beth Dissertation Prize for an outstanding dissertation in the areas Logic, Language and Information.
