Computer Science — Modelling & Simulation — Software Engineering


I speak four languages, lived in five countries and enjoy facing new challenges.

Currently, I work as a university assistant at Prof. Manuel Wimmer’s Institute for Business Informatics – Software Engineering at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria. My research interests are quite broad, but typically revolve around the concepts of systems modelling, digital twins & cyber-physical systems engineering, search-based and evolutionary methods, and the testing of complex systems such as autonomous driving systems.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Prof. Ichiro Hasuo’s ERATO MMSD Hasuo Project and Prof. Fuyuki Ishikawa’s MIRAI-eAI Project at the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo.

Before that, I completed my PhD at the Semantics, Modelling and Verification group at the University of Geneva under the supervision of Prof. Didier Buchs and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). I received my Master’s degree from the University of Manchester, UK and Bachelor’s from TU Wien.

I am also an enthusiastic presenter with international public speaking experience.
I teach courses in IT, programming, software development and project management.
Oh, and sometimes I also jump out of aeroplanes for fun.
