Consultation hours: by request

I am a Research and Teaching Associate at the Institute for Information Systems and New Media, part of the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU). I received my Bachelor and Master degree in Information Systems from the WU. From 2009 to 2014 I was part of the developer team for the e-learning platform Learn@WU. My main responsibilities included the development and integration of video and streaming services, also known as “Lecturecasts”. In 2014 I started teaching the course “Foundations in ICT” as part of our IT-Specialisation Business Information Systems. In summer 2017 I received the eTeaching Award as part of the Innovative Teaching Award 2017. Currently I am working on my dissertation and am enrolled in the PhD program at the WU. I play the saxophone and enjoy pinhole photography.
