About Me

I am an Expert Associate Partner based in Munich, Germany. I focus on analytics operations and business building. I have worked across discrete and process industries in Europe, North America and South Africa. I have expertise across in strategy as well as in operational excellence and AI transformations programs. I have deep technical expertise in generative AI and have successfully lead strategy programs as well as use case diagnostics and implementation work in this field.

I hold a PhD in particle physics from the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich obtained under the supervision of Nobel Prize Laureate Theodore Haensch. In the context of my academic experience I worked for the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics and the European center for Particle Physics CERN.


In the field of manufacturing and supply chain, I have worked on projects around machine learning driven asset optimization and predictive maintenance for increased throughput as well as in scheduling optimization projects via integer programming for cost reduction.

I also have experience in the field of analytics driven procurement where I have worked on generating spend transparency on large sets of procurement data via unsupervised learning techniques and potential estimates via regression modeling.
