My motto is: Building bridges between human beings and technology.
I had always been working as a vendor-agnostic consultant and trusted advisor to clients and I support them with picking, evaluating, understanding and implementing technology. Our business is called punktwissen: an artificial German word made up of 'Punkt' (point) and 'Wissen' (knowledge), indicating: Getting to the point and boiling down knowledge to the essential information.
My specialties: Modelling of heat pump systems that utilize unconventional heat sources, troubleshooting issues with digital certificates and Public Key Infrastructures.
My mission: Improving personal and economic independence of small businesses and entrepreneurially minded persons - via the clever utilization of renewable energies and carefully selected IT tools.
I am interested in the interfaces between building technology, energy engineering, applied physics, and IT infrastructure. In my thesis (2013) I have tried to combine everything I was ever interested in – physics, IT security, power engineering – writing about smart metering and security.
