About me

With my group “Value Creation Systematics” at the Institute of Production Engineering in Hamburg, I work with a team of scientists spanning several disciplines, including Mechanical Engineering, Management, Politics, Psychology as well as, Cultural and Social Sciences. The logic of openness which is the fundament of value co-creation has become the central element of my current work.

Within the AGYA I contribute to an excelling international scientific community. This will result in the emergence of powerful ideas and better solutions for the livelihood of society by promoting co-operation, common language and communication. I would like to work on projects on the topics of value co-creation in developing countries and on human-hybrid robots for overcoming the challenges of demographic change. Further I would like to promote international scientist- and student exchange.
