Welcome! I am a doctoral student with the Software & Digital Business Group at the Technical University of Darmstadt. Before I started my doctoral studies, I received a bachelor's degree in Business Informatics from the Technical University of Darmstadt and a master's degree in Business Informatics with specialization in Data & Web Science from the University of Mannheim. Parallel to my bachelor’s and master’s studies, I gained experience for several years in various areas at SAP (e.g., data science; analytics and IoT consulting) in Germany and the USA.
With my research, I strive to help understand how artificial intelligence changes organizations in virtuous and vicious ways, with a special focus on collaborations between human and artificial intelligence and their emergent dynamics in organizations. To this end, I focus on (1) the use of artificial intelligence in organizations and its impact on organizational efficiency and effectiveness, (2) data-driven innovation and ideation processes, and (3) machine learning and data science methods.
Methodologically, I prefer to pursue a rather explorative approach, hoping to inspire others and stimulate novel exciting endeavors in research and practice. Currently, my studies involve a stronger focus on (1) computationally intensive theory construction (e.g., simulations and digital trace analyses) and (2) qualitative interview studies.
