My academic career started in algorithm theory and engineering, especially in computational geometry and topology, with links to CAD/CAM, machine learning and security. Later my focus shifted to artificial intelligence and system architectures for industrial control systems. During my time in industry I worked in a broader sense on smart factory technology.

I am the director of the Josef Ressel Center for Intelligent and Secure Industrial Automation, with research fields on system architectures, artificial intelligence and security for industrial automation.
