Short Biography

István Koren is a PostDoc research associate at the chair of information systems and databases at RWTH Aachen University. He currently serves as deputy coordinator of the infrastructure area in the Internet of Production cluster of excellence, managing the computer science perspective. The infrastructure area thereby comprises around 50 researchers working on the topics of data infrastructure, model-based foundations, as well as artificial intelligence within the highly complex field of production engineering in Industry 4.0 settings. In several large-scale European research projects in the area of Technology Enhanced Learning (Learning Layers, WEKIT, AR-FOR-EU) and Industry 4.0 (Internet of Production) he has introduced numerous cutting edge software and information systems to manage societal development progresses. He supervised numerous bachelor and master thesis, and actively supports lectures, seminars and lab courses in our teaching.

István Koren completed his PhD studies at our chair in 2020. Previously, he received his diploma (master) degree in media and computer science in June 2012 from Technische Universität Dresden. In 2009, he spent several months at PUC-Rio, Brazil, and in summer 2012 at Shizuoka University, Japan for research stays respectively.
