where I focus
my research on applying social media technologies on business processes. I am active in the fields
of consulting (e.g. for Bayer Business Services GmbH), teaching and research. Beside my research
on social media topics, I am also engaged with research targeting mobile applications and project
leader of the SWITCH funded project Mobile
