About Me

I have spent almost 30 years as senior manager in various management positions at global software and technology companies including SAP and IBM. I have also worked at startups and non-profit organizations.

In recent years, I have dealt intensively with the topics of digital transformation and the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in companies. I have spend 5 years with IBM in the Watson Health team , supported the Tübingen AI Competence Center and the Cyber Valley Initiative as a strategic consultant and was active in the appliedAI initiative of UnternehmerTUM as Head of AI Ecosystem, where I was one of the initiators of the AI4Germany initiative.

I support the German Government in the development of the German AI Strategy. In 2020 I was nominated by the German Government to join the Global Partnership on AI (GPAI) as a representative for Germany and expert in the „Innovation & Commercialization“ panel. GPAI is an international and multistakeholder initiative to guide the responsible development and use of AI, grounded in human rights, inclusion, diversity, innovation, and economic growth

As a member of the board of directors of ADI Innovation AG I am advising founders, managers, financial investors and public institutions in the field of new technologies and the use of artificial intelligence.

As managing director of AI.Hamburg I am promoting the transfer and use of AI in companies in Hamburg and Northern Germany.

I am active as a Business Angel with investments in early stage AI Startups and running my own Consulting Business.
