I am hiring a PhD or Post-Doc in “graph data systems”! Apply here!

Welcome to my academic homepage!

You can find all the latest news on my research and teaching on this page.

My research is centered on distributed/decentralized information systems and data management. In particular, I am interested in improving the efficiency of analytical processing systems, such as graph processing, event processing and machine learning systems, and transactional processing systems, especially blockchains.

In my research projects, I tackle fundamental research questions in the areas mentioned above as well as applied research, especially on machine learning.


About Me

I am a professor of computer science at the University of Bayreuth, heading the Chair of Data Systems since March 2023.

Previously, I was an interim professor at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), leading the Chair for Data Engineering at the TUM Campus in Heilbronn. Before that, I was leading the Chair for Application and Middleware Systems as an interim professor, after working there as a post-doctoral researcher together with Prof. Hans-Arno Jacobsen.

Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Stuttgart in the Distributed Systems research group (Prof. Kurt Rothermel), where I was also awarded my PhD.

During my doctoral studies in Stuttgart, I spent some time as a guest researcher in the Embedded Pervasive Lab of Prof. Umakishore Ramachandran at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, USA.
