MY UNIQUE BACKGROUND
Cross-industry 5G, IoT and Edge Computing technology innovation is the focus of my innovation consultancy. As a pioneer in Edge Computing technology I laid successfully the foundation of the Silicon Valley spin-off MobiledgeX within an agile innovation project at Detecon, the consulting arm of Deutsche Telekom. Within 8 years of consulting at Detecon I gained experience in different roles as executive adviser, lead technology, rapid prototyping IoT and solution design in multiple international projects.
Prior to joining Detecon I worked in R&D within an European Union research project in the context of LTE-Advanced and at Ericsson Germany in IMS integration and solution design projects. I received my Master in Electrical Engineering and Communication Technology at RWTH Aachen University Germany and KTH University Stockholm Sweden focusing on Communications Engineering, Communications Systems, Mobile Radio Networks, Man Machine Interaction and Robotics.
