Years of work in client oriented, science based consulting, before on industry shop floors in production planning and control, but as well years of academic experience as doctorand, habilitand, associate, adjunct and professor at different university chairs, find its expression in research on theoretical and practical key challenges regarding the management, services and operations in supply chains and logistics.
Some specific topics relate to business models of key actors, processes and network structures, (human) resources in logistics, sustainability or the application of related ICT. Approaches are in consequence often characterized as interdisciplinary work but always target on the management aspects in the field.
