Bring AI into Practice

With over 20 years of experience as an AI expert, I have been at the forefront of bridging the gap between AI theory and practice across various industries, including finance, smart production, and life sciences. I have developed tailored AI strategies, governance frameworks, and high-impact use cases to help organizations harness the power of cutting-edge technologies.

Contact me if you're seeking an AI expert who can inspire and inform an audience with dynamic presentations, translating complex AI concepts into actionable insights, and leveraging years of hands-on experience and a deep understanding of the latest developments in artificial intelligence.

My two-day workshop "Generative AI for Decision Makers", offered through Bitkom Academy, was ranked as the top workshop by the prestigious Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) in their latest ratings.

In particular, I focus on the transformative potential of generative AI and large language models (LLMs). Today, with generative AI emerging as a first step towards all-purpose AI, it is enabling the application of AI in domains and for tasks that were previously considered impossible or very difficult to support. Specializing in generative AI and large language models (LLMs), I help companies quickly integrate these technologies into real-world use. By conducting AI awareness workshops, delivering targeted skills training, and implementing AI solutions for diverse applications, I empower clients to build AI competence, foster a culture of continuous learning, and harness the full potential of AI. 

Driving Innovation Across Industries

I have applied AI in various fields, such as education, smart production, life science, and financial industries. Today, I serve as the Competence Lead AI at macros Financial Technology Consult GmbH. At macros, I collaborate with clients to develop innovative use cases that push the boundaries of what was previously thought possible with AI. By leveraging generative AI and LLMs, we create solutions that support human tasks previously considered beyond the reach of artificial intelligence, revolutionizing the way businesses operate and deliver value.

Before joining macros, I led the AI department at CENTOGENE GmbH, where I focused on improving diagnostic processes for rare diseases. Our team's efforts were recognized with the Health-i Award 2021 by the Handelsblatt Media Group and Techniker Krankenkasse for innovation in healthcare. We developed an AI-based system that supports metabolomic analysis, contributing to advancements in the field of rare disease diagnostics.
Until 2019, I was an associate head of a research department at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI GmbH), where I was named a "DFKI Research Fellow" for "outstanding scientific achievements and special services in technology transfer".

I received my doctorate in computer science from Saarland University in 2007 and habilitated at the Faculty of Computer Science at Chemnitz University of Technology in 2020.

In 2016, I developed the course  "Ausbildung zum KI Manager – Grundlagen Künstlicher Intelligenz und Anwendungspotenziale für Unternehmen" ( "Training to become an AI manager - basics of AI and application potential for companies") for bitkom akademie, and have been teaching it ever since. In 2023, I developed the course "Generative AI and General Purpose AI" for bitkom.
