About me

As the Co-founder and CTO, I bring a wealth of experience from my tenure as Senior Director Strategic Solutions EMEAI at C3.ai, where I led the implementation of large-scale AI solutions to drive digital transformation across industries. Previously, I spearheaded the AI and Data Analytics department at iteratec and held a Senior Manager role in management consulting at Deloitte, focusing on AI strategy, business optimization, and growth through innovation. My background is grounded in leading R&D teams and consulting in business model innovation, supported by a PhD in Computer Science specializing in semantic data integration using NLP technologies. In my current role, I am dedicated to leveraging technology to innovate, drive business growth, and shape the future of digital landscapes.
