Welcome to Christoph Peters, Visiting Scholar from University of St. Gallen, Switzerland

We are excited to announce that Dr. Christoph Peters from the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland, and the University of Kassel, Germany, is joining the University of Maryland College of Information Studies as a visiting scholar! He will be here at the iSchool for three months, starting May 19. 

He is currently a project manager and postdoctoral researcher at both the University of St. Gallen and the University of Kassel. His research has involved service systems/value networks and their engineering, the future of (digital) work, and sustainable concepts for a good urban life in future cities. In September 2015, he successfully completed his dissertation and defended it with highest distinction (summa cum laude) at the University of Kassel. It deals with the systematic modularization of services having a focus on telemedicine services.Christoph found several centers and groups, like CASCI, HCIL, and IPAC, of particular interest during his visit.And he is looking forward to collaborating with the iSchool faculty and would bring in his experience and project backgrounds from service research and design science research, as well as the e-health and smart city domain.
