I am fascinated by large-scale technical infrastructure and driven to improve its utility, efficiency and security by digital means. My core competencies for developing strategies and architectures of complex software-intensive systems are in
- analyzing what is,
- comprehending what is possible,
- and designing what shall be.
Within this triad, I leverage my expertise in multiple technical disciplines: From hardware and software development to devops and field-operations; from transceivers to communication networks; and from the mathematical and statistical foundations to signal processing and algorithms. I complement the technical aspects with broad knowledge and experience in systemic cross-cutting concerns, such as risk analysis, regulation, standardization and certification. In addition, I command a working knowledge in business administration, product management, and controlling. Several years of experience managing R&D projects and leading diverse development teams taught me how to make the knowledge and expertise of teams effective. I think of myself as a generalized specialist and tech manager who can communicate at eye level with technical staff, business people, and regulation authorities. Most importantly, I can quickly grasp and communicate the essence of technical details and judge the ramifications abstract requirement have on a concrete design.
My strength are:
- To fundamentally analyze complex multi-faceted problems and to abstract over them: The understanding of causal chains and drivers that underly many special cases allows me to come up with generic, robust and reusable solutions.
- To Discover existing and to create novel structure: Because structure provides orientation and predictability, and thus is the foundation for durable and secure systems.
