Short Biography

Short Biography

Kai joined RWTH Aachen University's Computer Science Department as a member of technical staff in 1985. Since 1987, he has been Head of Technical Staff at the Chair of Informatik 4 (Communication & Distributed Systems). He holds a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Edinburgh and is a Certified Standards Professional.

Kai's current research interests and activities focus on various aspects of ICT standards and the underlying standardisation process. He is Vice President of the European Academy for Standardisation (EURAS), as well as founder and editor-in-chief of the 'International Journal on IT Standards & Standardization Research', and of the 'Advances in Information Technology Standards and Standardization Research' and the 'EURAS Contributions to Standardisation Research' book series.

Over time, he (co)-authored/edited a text book on data communication networks and, more recently, 25 books on standards and standardisation processes, with a focus on the ICT sector. More than 180 of his papers have been published in conference proceedings, books, and journals. He has been on the programme committee and editorial board of numerous international conferences and journals, respectively, and has served as an external expert on evaluation panels of various European R&D programmes, on both technical and socio-economic issues.
