Science & Consulting

Rochus has many years of experience in multimedia technology, including software and systems engineering, interdisciplinary analysis, design and architecture, but also process re-engineering, project and quality management, documentation and training.

Rochus has studied electrical engineering and information technology at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zürich). He received an academic degree as Diplom-Ingenieur (MSc) in 1991. His master thesis about a “Real-time Expert System for Simulation of the Piano Accompaniment in a Jazz Band” with Prof. H. Baggenstoss and Denis L. Baggi was honored with a best mark. He received continuing education in business management (ETH BWI 1992/1993) and law (Universität Zürich, 1998/1999). From 2000 to 2005 Rochus conducted the Ph.D. project “Optimizing the Process of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrum Analysis and Computer Aided Resonance Assignment” at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biophysics at ETH Zurich with Prof. Dr. Kurt Wüthrich (Nobel Price 2002 for chemistry). Since then he is involved with several scientific projects addressing NMR process automation (e.g. CARA, LuaNLopt), knowledge management and information systems (e.g. doorscope.ch, patis.ch).
