I am now an Assistant Professor at Chalmers Technical University and the University of Gothenburg. You can find my new homepage here.

Research Interests

I used to act as the coordinator of the DFG research unit OC-Trust which focuses on the trustworthiness of large-scale open self-organising socio-technical systems. I have already been involved in the SAVE ORCA project during my time as a research assistant.

My main interests and some of the questions associated with them are:

  • Self-Organisation and Emergence: How do these two concepts relate? Which paradigms yield self-organisation? How can emergent behaviour be predicted and influenced within a system?
  • Problem Decomposition and Optimisation: How can algorithms for adaptive systems be decomposed and broken down to achieve macro level goals with micro-level behaviour? Which quality can be achieved by distributed algorithms without centralised knowledge and control?
  • Software Engineering: How can the inherently unpredictable behaviour of a self-organising system be incorporated in the engineering process? In what way can specialised software engineering processes support the design of self-organising adaptive systems?
  • Multi-Agent Systems: How can multi-agent systems support self-organising systems? Which communication structures assist self-organising systems?

Teaching

I used to teach the master-level course "Selbst-organisierende adaptive Systeme". In addition, I usually have a couple of topics for theses, projects, or research assistant jobs available, so please come see me if you're interested.
