Education: PhD in Information Systems (Dr. rer. nat., from Technical University Munich, Topic: Rule Based Service Level Agreements), MSc. in Information Systems (Dipl. Wirtsch.-Inf Univ. from Fridrich Alexander University Erlangen/Nürnberg), BSc. degrees in Economics (Operations Research) (from Ludwig Maximilian University) and Information Systems (from Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen/Nürnberg), research staff member at the National Research Council (NRC) in Canada, and the Biotec Innovation Centre Dresden in Germany.

PhD: "Rule-Based Service Level Agreements - Knowledge Representation for Automated e-Contract, SLA and Policy Management "

Key qualifications: Adrian was involved in multiple industrial software development und business engineering projects. He has led several knowledge engineering projects in the areas of distributed heterogeneous information systems, distributed Semantic Web applications, multi-agent technologies, supply chain event management and monitoring, IT government and service management, and rule-based systems for eContract, SLA and policy management.
