I'm a tenure-track assistant professor of Software Engineering and Information Systems Development at the Department of Computer Science, University of Copenhagen.
The primary goal of my research is to provide technologies that facilitate flexible workflow support for knowledge workers, in particular in the context of complex cross-organizational knowledge-intensive processes. I am a principal author on the declarative Dynamic Condition Response (DCR) Graphs process modelling notation and the initial architect of the DCR Portal, the first commercial declarative process modelling and execution framework. My research interests include declarative and hybrid process technologies, the application of formal methods to business process management, process mining, distributed ledger technologies and information systems development.

I am currently funded by the Hybrid Business Process Management Technologies project, an individual postdoc grant under the auspices of the Danish Council for Independent Research. In addition I am funded by the Effective co-created & compliant adaptive case management for Knowledge workers (EcoKnow) project, a grand solutions grant, supported by Innovation Fund Denmark.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the IT University of Copenhagen, under supervision of Thomas Hildebrandt.
I'm currently supervising Christoffer Olling Back (together with Jørgen P. Bansler) and Amine Abbad Andaloussi (together with Barbara Weber).
