My research focuses on enabling interoperability in systems of systems, specifically dynamic interoperability of messages, sometimes called semantic interoperability. I am currently investigating the approaches to combine modern machine learning techniques with metadata.

Current Projects

- Arrowhead Tools

Past Projects

- Productive 4.0


- TA in Electric Circuit Theory (E0003E).
- TA in IoT-based industrial automation and digitalization (D7042E).


Member of the board of the PhD Association 2020-2021 as a member of the Research Education Group.
