"Computer science gets exciting for me when it solves real problems."
With this conviction in mind, Stephan Haarmann began his bachelor's degree in IT Systems Engineering at HPI. Through his bachelor project in the HPI research group Business Process Technology, he had already developed tools for modeling flexible business processes at Bosch. In his master's degree at HPI, Haarmann also devoted himself to the optimization of business processes in companies and submitted his first scientific publications. His master thesis dealt with the topic of decision-aware compliance checking. Haarmann’s work has been deemed as groundbreaking by the University of Potsdam from a theoretical, empirical and methodological point of view. After his outstanding master's degree, he now has a position as a PhD student at HPI's Business Process Technology department, and we are curious to see what prizes follow!
