Consultation on Appointment

I am a senior lecturer at the Institute for Data, Process and Knowledge Management, part of the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU). I received my Bachelor and Master degree (with distinction) in Information Systems from the WU. Before starting my PhD studies I was affiliated with the e-learning platform LEARN as a software developer from 2009 - 2014. My main responsibilities included the development and integration of video and streaming services for higher education, also known as “Lecturecasts”. I started teaching the seminar “Grundzüge der IKT” in 2014 as part of the IT-Specialisation Business Information Systems for which I received the eTeaching Award as part of the Innovative Teaching Award 2017 and for which I was nominated for the “Ars Docendi Staatspreis für exzellente Lehre 2020”. From 2019 - 2022 I was involved as a project partner in the Erasmus+ co-funded project “Supporting Educators’ Pedagogical Activities with 360°-Video (SEPA360)”. Currently I am finishing my PhD thesis and involved in the organisation and production of the new VUE Grundlagen der Wirtschaftsinformatik.
