I have been concerned with emerging leading-edge technologies for almost a decade now – specializing in nanotechnology, ICT and robotics. As a former research consultant for the German federal government’s advisory board for innovation, I mainly focused on the foresight of economic impacts of new digital business models and disruptive technological innovations as well as on suitable regulatory environments (regional innovation clusters, innovation agencies, R&D tax credit schemes). I became fascinated with machine learning techniques and blockchain applications.
After some time in finance, where I established new tool frameworks for agile IT portfolios, I have finally joined Honda R&D Europe’s innovation activities in July 2019. Now I am happy to contribute in all shin areas (energy management, connected services, MaaS and data utilization) as well as representing HRE-G as contact person for Honda Xcelerator activities. I moreover support agile projects and Design Thinking activities across all departments in Germany.
What I love about Honda? Opportunity recognition is not just a buzzword here – we keep track of the world’s most recent technological and societal developments and contribute with passion and joy!
