He also was a visiting academic at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA, the University of Newcastle, Australia, and the University of Wollongong, Australia. Through his longstanding work in and with German and Australian manufacturing companies and the Australian Defence Force, he built a deep understanding of the socio-technical opportunities and challenges of advanced manufacturing and Industry 4.0.

His work experience ranges from a simple metal shop, via the shared-economy start-up WeWash to MTU Aero Engines. Through his applied research projects, he supports organisations in understanding and solving pressing complex socio-technical problems. His work particularly focuses on the interface and dependencies between advanced manufacturing and engineering design and the transfer of research results to practice.
