I have been working in computer networking for a long time, starting with my Ph.D. in computer networking from ETH Zürich. Publishing the worldwide first book about the technical foundations of the Web during my post-doc year at ICSI, my interest switched to Web technologies and Web architecture, and this is the field that I have been working in since 1997.

Working at ETH Zürich and as an independent consultant, I had the opportunity to both work on interesting research topics (mostly focusing on XML and associated topics such as XSLT and XSD), and to consult companies about their Web-related strategies and projects. For two years, I managed a project about shared management for bibliographic data, where we defined and used XML-based data models (my online bibliography is managed with this system).

I joined the UC Berkeley School of Information from 2006 to 2011, shifting my focus from structured data to Web services in general, Web-oriented architectures for mobile and/or location-oriented services. We have applied these architectural principles to areas as diverse as open e-government data and personalized location-based services.

In 2011, I joined EMC's Information Intelligence Group (IIG), where I was working on how to transform the existing and future product portfolio to a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), based on Web Architecture and REST. As part of my work for EMC, I was serving as co-chair of the W3C's Linked Data Platform (LDP) Working Group.

In the summer of 2014, I joined Siemens' Web of Things research group in Berkeley. We are conducting research that applies principles of Web Architecture to scenarios such as building automation and healthcare IT.

In addition to my professional and research work, I regularly serve as a program committee member for a variety of conferences and workshops as well as for some journals, and have also started to organize some of these events myself.
