My research interests are the conceptual development and implementation of techno-economic models and quantitative methods for decision support in the fields of production, logistics and environmental management. I especially emphasize interdisciplinary cooperation with research institutes from engineering and natural sciences, industrial partners and political decision makers. Current research projects for example cover questions of production planning and control in the iron and steel industry, supply chain management in the electronic industry, product related environmental management in the automobile industry and designing production networks for product recovery.
