During his academic activities, he worked as a lecturer and academic advisor in the seminar ‘Assisted Living: Sensor and Game Technologies for an Aging Generation’ at the University of Potsdam | Institute of Computer Science from 2011 to 2012. In this interdisciplinary environment, he worked closely with computer scientists, physiotherapists and sports scientists on research topics such as movement tracking and the modeling of therapeutic exercises for stroke patients.

Since 2024, he has been working as a research associate and co-coordinator in the BMBF project ‘Computer Assistance for the Validation and Accreditation of Study Regulations to Improve Studyability (CAVAS+)“, with primary focus on the technical aspect of that symbolic AI assistance system.

  • Knowledge management/representation
  • AI, Natural Language Processing (NLP)
  • Team development/social psychological behaviour in the context of agile methods/frameworks

Teaching activities (HTW Berlin et al.):

  • Software engineering/software ergonomics (computer science, psychology, cognitive neurophysiology)
  • Design thinking and agile frameworks (eg. Scrum)
  • Fundamentals of business informatics (bits & bytes, algorithms and data structures, knowledge management)’

Besides the science stuff, Erik has extensive professional experience from corporate projects with customers such as Eppendorf, REWE digital and Volkswagen (eg. CARIAD), where he specialized in software/product development as well as team and organizational development.
