Scientific Career

Patrick received his M.Sc. in Computer Science from the TU Berlin in April 2021. His focus was on IT Security, especially anomaly detection in networks, vulnerability analysis of hosts and data privacy. 
During his studies, he worked at Signavio, Siemens Mobility, and init AG in Corporate IT (SAP & Salesforce), BPMN, ITIL, DevOps, and data analysis.
At Siemens Mobility, he developed and deployed a user management system that collects and manages users' information and corresponding Siemens Mobility Mindsphere ecosystems’ assets.

Patrick has joined the Telekom Innovation Laboratories in May 2021 as a research scientist in the research group on Service-centric Networking (SNET), led by Prof. Dr. Axel Küpper.
