Bela Mutschler received his diploma in computer science from the University of Ulm, Germany, in 2003. After working as a research assistant at the University of Ulm for sixth months, he joined Daimler AG (Group Research), Germany as a process engineer in 2004. During his time at Daimler, Bela was also an external Ph.D. student in the Information Systems Group at the University of Twente (UT), The Netherlands, where he completed his Ph.D. thesis in January 2008. In his dissertation, Bela investigated causal dependencies and resulting cost effects in projects dealing with the introduction of process-aware information systems. Since November 1st 2008, Bela is a full professor at the University of Applied Sciences Ravensburg-Weingarten, Germany. Bela is an expert in the fields of (automotive) process management and the design and development of process-aware information systems. His particular research interest is the performance of empirical and experimental research in the field of BPM and process-aware information systems as well as the design and introduction of enterprise (process) portals.
