Having a background in Astronomy and Geophysics, I have moved into IT and quality management and testing over time.
My professional career in the quality area started in 1998. After quite some year as commercialisation engineer and tester, I started managing test teams at T-Mobile Germany, where I became responsible for the quality of T-Mobile\'s charging and billing engine, as well as for other smaller projects. This was quite a task as the software serves 40 million customers and I was dealing with one of the biggest Oracle installations in Europe. This part of telecommunications and computing is a fascinating and rapidly changing field, being close to the leading edge of technology.
My focus shifted then to the international scene, where I became responsible for the quality management and testing of all international plattforms of Deutsche Telekom Group Headquarter Services.
Since 2010 I am head of quality assurance at congstar, the young and stylish second brand of Deutsche Telekom in Germany, where I enjoy implementing quality measures for a lean telco on the green field. This is especially exciting as congstar is totally dedicated to agile methods.
During my days in the scientific community my main interest was the application of scattered data approximation theory, and the development of 2D-algorithms for real world geophysical data.
Geographically, I am located in Brühl, Germany, where I enjoy life with my partner and my two daughters.
My main areas of interest are:
