Meine Forschungsschwerpunkte liegen in zusammengesetzten Anwendungen "in der Cloud". Ich beschäftige mich mit allen Schritten im Lebenszyklus einer Cloud Anwendung von der Konzeption mandantenfähiger Anwendungen bis hin zum automatischen Konfigurieren und Bereitstellen solcher Anwendungen. Hierbei interessieren mich besonders Anwendungen die auf einer mit Web Services realisierten SOA basieren und die WS-BPEL als Orchestrierungssprache verwenden.Darüberhinaus interessieren mich Transaktionen im Web-Service Umfeld.
