At the moment I am jointly employed by the IT University of Copenhagen (funded by the CompArt project) and Exformatics A/S as a post-doctoral researcher investigating declarative and hybrid process modelling technologies.

I recently successfully defended my PhD dissertation, a preliminary version of which is available here.
I worked on the Technologies for Flexible Cross-organizational Case Management Systems (FLExCMS) industrial PhD project, which aimed to research techniques for the development of safe and flexible crossorganizational electronic case management systems guided by challenges identified by case studies carried out jointly with Exformatics and the development of a state-of-the-art declarative case management workflow engine for Exformatics. In particular we 1) researched a flexible process notation and process model for case management and 2) researched techniques for safe distributed case management processes.
My supervisors were Thomas Hildebrandt (ITU), Morten Marquard (Exformatics) and Marco Carbone (co-supervisor, ITU).
The project was co-funded by Exformatics and the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation and ran from the 1st of January 2012 until the 31st of December 2014.
