New doctoral student joins our team

Tobias Fechner will focus on AI applications in procurement

Tobias holds a B.Sc. in Business Informatics from DHBW Mannheim and a master's degree in Data Science (M.Sc.) from the University of Mannheim. During his master's studies, Tobias was an exchange student at Tilburg University, Netherlands, and worked as a Business Intelligence Engineer intern at Amazon in Luxembourg. He wrote his master's thesis in cooperation with Asea Brown Boveri (ABB) in the area of Large Language Models (LLMs) for fault detection and diagnosis in industrial process plants.

His background provides the ideal launching pad for doctoral research in the area of artificial intelligence and its applications in procurement/supply chain management. This research will be supported by our close partner Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG.
