My research topics are Combinatorial Optimization, Approximation Algorithms, Deciding Under Uncertainty, Probabilistic Methods, Online Computation, and Scheduling Problems.

I completed my studies of Computer Science (with minor in Mathematics) from 11/1996 to 10/2001 at the Technical University of Munich, specializing in Algorithms and Optimization. I have also been at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), NY, USA, as a stipendiary of the American European Engineering Exchange programme from 1/2000 to 6/2000. I was a student of Prof. Angelika Steger at ETH Zürich from 11/2001 to 5/2006 leading to a PhD in Computer Science. Furthermore, I have held two post-doc positions at the Humboldt University of Berlin and at the University of Freiburg from 5/2006 to 8/2011 with Prof. Susanne Albers. These positions resulted in a Habilitation degree, which was received 2/2012. I was an interim full professor from 9/2011 to 4/2012 for Algorithms and Datastructures at the University of Freiburg in Germany.

From 4/2012 to 2/2014 I was an employee at apixxo AG in Olten, Switzerland, as Lead Developer and Optimization Expert. Since 3/2014, I am Senior Consultant at Quintiq. Even after having joined a company, I stayed in touch with academia and teach Advanced Algorithms at the University of Zürich from 2/2012 onwards as an external docent.
