I studied Sociology and Economics. During my studies I started to focus on how digitalization changes the economy, working conditions and relations. After my graduation I started as Social Science Researcher at the ISF Munich. It is one of the leading research institutes in Germany with a specific focus on digitalization and the future of work. My research focuses on the role of Cloud and IoT in innovation strategies and on the rising role of open source in digital transformation and the corresponding changes in how organizations work and corporate software development is organized.
