Accepting PhD Students


Personal profile

Research interests

Central to my research has always been the usage of digital technologies to manage and support business operations in a more intelligent way. Generally, these technologies can enable either data collection and sharing or decision-making and execution. I am interested in application areas across the value chain with a special focus on supply chain management and logistics.

Willing to supervise PhD

I am looking forward to working with students with an interest in the application and evaluation of digital/IT technologies in business operations, especially in logistics and supply chain management. I am happy to discuss your personal ideas and I am generally open to new topics.
