Introduction
My research interests include the design and implementation of web based information systems with state-of-the-art technologies. I have particular experience with the design of distributed systems handling large-scale databases for automated manufacturing systems and modern architectures for task-oriented systems with a service- and event-based approach based on semantic technologies. I was involved in several FP7 projects like PESCaDO, TRIDEC and SAFEWATER and now in the H2020 interdisciplinary project HERACLES and beAWARE leading system architecture and development work packages.

Recently, the usage of triplestores has increased in complex computer systems. Traditionally, they are used for representing static knowledge. In the last years, systems started using semantic triplestores in highly dynamic scenarios, e.g., in the context of civil protection. In these use cases, performance characteristics are more and more importa...

In many application domains sensor data contributes an important part to the situation awareness required for decision making. Examples range from environmental and climate change situations to industrial production processes. All these fields need to aggregate and fuse many data sources, the semantics of the data needs to be understood and the res...

In a natural disaster situation, it is crucial to orchestrate an efficient response, which prevents, or - at least - mitigates damages. Based on the assumption, that a well-informed decision maker can make the best decisions, s/he should have access to all available information. Thus, employing both internal and external data empowers decision make...
