Before starting my maternity leave, I have been a Data Architect for the business division Enterprise Customers at Swisscom (Schweiz) AG. My responsibilities comprised the definition of concepts and strategies for data quality and data architecture management, the specification of data architecture for projects in product and capability development, the definition and enforcement of principles for data architecture governance as well as conceptual data modelling across the Swisscom group.
Prior to my position at Swisscom, I was Research Assistant and doctoral student in business administration with focus on business innovation at the Chair of Prof. em. Dr. Hubert Österle at the Institute of Information Management of the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. At the IWI-HSG I was member of the Competence Center Corporate Data Quality (CC CDQ) of Prof. Dr. Boris Otto and earned my doctorate on Enterprise Data Architecture Management. The CC CDQ is a consortial research project aiming at both the advancement of corporate data quality research and the development of concepts and methodologies of practical relevance. I participated in several research projects with consortial partner companies and supported the NisB Project. The latter was funded by the European Union in the Framework Programme 7.
From 2008 to 2010 I was Senior Consultant for Enterprise Information Management at the department Business Analytics and Optimization at IBM Germany. My focus topics were Master Data Management and Data Quality Management.
Previously, I graduated from the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, Germany with a diploma in computer science with secondary subject business administration.
My research interests include enterprise data architecture design, enterprise data modelling, and enterprise data standardisation and I gained practical experience in the industries transportation, telecommunications, pharma, and utilities.
