Research Topics & Biographical Sketch

Thomas is a former member of the HPI research school on "Service-oriented Systems Engineering" and now a researcher at the "Enterprise Platform and Integration Concepts" group. After completing both the Bachelor’s and the Master’s program at HPI he decided to continue with his Ph.D. studies at this institute, but broadened the focus from a completely technical to a more design research driven level. He is involved in various teaching activities, for example as a teaching assistant in a software engineering lecture. There he is responsible for organizing an exercise that has all 80 students of the lecture develop a single system in a joint effort. Furthermore, he is responsible for organizing the ME310 lecture at the EPIC chair and also serves as a teaching assistant in that course.
