Technical Sales DACH Region
June 2014 --- December 2014
As an application specialist I focussed on technical sales in the DACH region, a region where ANT wanted to get a stronger foothold. Within short term I managed to turn over a number of leads and convert them into sales. In addition to the core region, I supported ANT's worldwide network of distributors in their demoes and conference presence.
January 2012 --- September 2014
Talentspender matches professionals from business, marketing, internet & design, finance and legal to non-profit organizations. These professionals, or Talents, fulfill clearly defined and time-limited pro bono projects, bringing to the table their most valuable assets: their experience, their network and their professionalism. I have led the organization from the conception stage into the startup phase, until it transitioned into proboneo (www.proboneo.de) in late 2013. Proboneo is currently changing the face of pro-bono in Germany.
Research Associate (PhD)
February 2009 --- December 2013
During my post-graduate work I was a research associate for the international, EU funded TOBI project. In TOBI we developed practical technology for brain-computer interaction (BCI). I was involved in all aspects, including algorithmic improvements, application design and validation. As a work package leader I managed an international team of researchers, ensured high-quality outcome and guaranteed on time delivery of results.
October 2010 --- October 2010
At the Fondazione Santa Lucia rehabilitation hospital I had the chance to validate parts of my doctoral work with paralyzed end-users. During one month, five patients were tested over several sessions. The results were published in one journal paper, and several conference contributions.
April 2010 --- April 2010
During a two week research visit, I performed experiments to investigate the impact of feedback on the performance in brain-computer interfaces. The results were published at a major conference.
January 2008 --- August 2008
During a research visit for my master in Neuroscience, I laid the foundations for my later doctoral work. I investigated the basic principles of an auditory brain-computer interface that moved away from a purely binary interface design.
