I am working as a senior predictive analytics professional for the IBM - SPSS brand.
Before joining IBM I was with Information Works, a German business analytics consultancy, designing and implementing analytic and data warehouse solutions for about four years. Information Works is an IBM and SAS implementation partner. Previously I was with Eurobios in London for almost six years, designing and implementing complex simulation and optimisation applications in the area of supply chain modeling and risk management. I joined Eurobios after having been with the Ernst & Young Business Risk Consulting group in Germany for a about a year, developing a number of advanced risk-modeling applications. Ernst & Young was the former owner of Bios Group, the Santa Fe based parent company of Eurobios.
Between my DEA in Mathematical Economics and Econometrics at the Sorbonne in Paris and the start of my job as a research assistant at the University of Tuebingen, I spent six months with the economic research team of Deutsche Bank in Paris developing econometric models for the bond market.
Having studied mathematical economics and econometrics at the Universities of Hamburg, Tuebingen (both in Germany), the University of Michigan (USA) and at the Panthéon-Sorbonne in Paris (France), I gained a Doctorate (Ph.D.) in Econometrics from the University of Tuebingen in 1999 for work on polyserial correlation and credit risk models.
I am holder of the Professional Risk Manager (PRM) designation by PRMIA and a Sun certified Java programmer.
