Research:

My research focus are (conceptual) models in a variety of domains and applications. We develop domain-specific modeling languages (DSMLs) and methods (DSMMs) for domains such as Ambient Assisted Living, Controlling and Finances, Energy, Health, Internet of Production (IoP), Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0 or Smart Homes. The models created with such languages can be used to develop model-based assistance and information systems and services. In focus of such languages is either structural and/or behavioral data (see context modeling [MS17]), the system architecture or a combination of both [ANV+18]. Recent work deals with digital twins [DMR+20], the human factor in the internet of production [MNRV19], user-centered data privacy [MKM+19], smart assisted living [SM20], the semantic analysis of models [DKMR19,DKMR20], behavior goal modeling [MRV20] and assistive and informative systems in general.

(Selected) Projects:

Projects at RWTH Aachen University:

  • Project leader of MaCoCo (Management Cockpit for Controlling): A multi-user web-application for the decentralized management and controlling of organizational processes within the chairs or institutes of RWTH Aachen university (Founder: RWTH Aachen university)
  • InviDas: Interaktive, visuelle Datenräume zur souveränen, datenschutzrechtlichen Entscheidungsfindung. The aim of InviDas is to provide future and current users of smart wearables, such as fitness watches, better insight into their data profiles and help them to make informed decisions about sharing personal data more easily. (Founder: BMBF)
  • Internet of Production (IoP): Deputy Coordinator CRD-A.II (Conceptual Foundations of Digital Shadows). The Cluster of Excellence Internet of Production the vision to enable a new level of cross-domain collaboration by providing semantically adequate and context-aware data from production, development, and usage in real-time on an appropriate level of granularity.
  • SemanticDiff: A Semantic Approach to Evolution Analysis in Model-Based Software Development (Founder: DFG)

Projects at AAU: Since project start in 2011, I have been a team member of the Human Behavior Monitoring and Support (HBMS) project, where we have developed an assistive system for human behavior support (Founder: Klaus Tschira Stiftung, Heidelberg). See the video playlist for some insights and results. Further information can be found in my publication list.

Publications:

My recent publications are focussing on (conceptual) modeling (domain specific modeling languages, context modeling, privacy meta-modeling, model-based generation of enterprise information systems) especially in the active assistance, controlling, IoP and IoT domains. Please see further publications in my Google scholar or Researchgate profile. For more publications of the Software Engineering group, please have a look at the prepared curated lists.

My PhD thesis in the Application Engineering group (Prof. Heinrich C. Mayr) at AAU, Austria, was about cognitive modelling for assistive systems.
