Senior Key Expert, Siemens Corporate Technology

Certified Industry 4.0 Professional, Certified R&D Project Manager

About

Currently I work as a senior key expert and research scientist for Siemens, where my main task is to understand the bottlenecks and problems within Siemens and advise the business units in adopting a change. This has enhanced my skillset in understanding the business impact of software solutions in diverse disciplines (heathcare, automation, industry etc). As a consultant, I also analyze existing solutions, propose changes and implement them with a team.

I regularly write papers in top software engineering journals and present them in conferences. This gives me the chance to network with peers around the world in relevant topics and keep me up to date on latest advancements in my field. I have published over 50 papers in international conferences and Journals.

As a key expert, I am responsible for strategically defining the research roadmap for this topic and carrying out an implementation plan to make Siemens ahead of competition in this area. This very often means active collaboration with universities and other research institutions - defining research project and executing them.
