Prof. Dr. Stefanie Rinderle-Ma



Academic Career and Research Areas

Prof. Rinderle-Ma‘s (*1976) research interests focus on process-oriented information systems, flexible and distributed process technologies, compliance management, as well as production and process intelligence. The goal is to enable and accelerate digitalization and automation through processes and at the same time keep the human in the loop. Application areas comprise production, logistics, and medicine.

Prof. Rinderle-Ma studied business mathematics at the University of Augsburg. After finishing her PhD and habilitation at the University of Ulm where she worked as research assistant and post doc stays in the Netherlands and Canada, Prof. Rinderle-Ma became full professor at the University of Vienna where she led the research group Workflow Systems and Technology. Since 2021 Prof Rinderle-Ma is at TUM (Chair for Information Systems and Business Process Management).
