Consultation hours upon request (during COVID)
I am a Full Professor of Computer Science at the Department of Informatics at Clausthal University of Technology. I have been Managing Director of the Department of Informatics since 2008, and I am currently the Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics/Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering. I hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Universität des Saarlandes (1996) in the area of Artificial Intelligence, Intelligent Agents and Multiagent Systems. Prior to becoming a professor, I obtained ten years of industrial research experience in agent technology and peer-to-peer computing, working for Siemens Corporate Technology (1999-2006), John Wiley and Sons (1998-1999), and Mitsubishi Electric (1996-1998).
My current research interests cover the broad area of modelling and simulation of socio-technical systems, coordination and intelligent systems. A long-term research focus is on agent-based modelling and simulation in the area of intelligent transport systems and future connected traffic systems. I served on numerous conference committees in the area of AI, intelligent agents and multi-agent systems and have co-authored over 250 scientific publications.
