Prof. Dr. Anna Frebel, Associate Professor of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) Department of Physics and Jörn Halbauer, CEO & founder of birkle IT after signing a certificate of cooperation.

We are honored to announce that Jörn Halbauer, CEO of birkle IT AG, and Prof. Dr. Anna Frebel, Associate Professor of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) Department of Physics have signed a certificate of cooperation.

Prof. Dr. Frebel is an internationally recognized scientist and published author. She is best known for her discoveries and spectroscopic analyses of the oldest, most metal-poor stars in the Milky Way to explore the chemical and physical conditions of the early universe. Her work is always at the technological frontier and she applies the latest artificial intelligence methods in her ground-breaking research.

Technical innovation in healthcare

In the future, we will work together on complex computational analysis of big data. Together, we will discuss synergistic opportunities between different STEMM fields interested in complex computational analysis of big data, combining M.I.T. and birkle IT AG expertise in high-performance computing, computational analysis, image processing, and big data mining.

Through this collaboration, we aim to foster technical innovation, especially in the healthcare system, and support medical research. With our experience in the successful implementation of projects in the healthcare sector, birkle IT will bring the newest innovations and technology from the forefront of science to our clients across Europe.

The advisory board for a scientific approach

Prof. Dr. Anna Frebel is also part of the new Advisory Board of birkle IT together with Prof. Dr.-Ing. Darius Burschka, Professor at the Technical University of Munich and Prof. Dr. Med. Ulrich Stöckle, Executive Director of the Centre for Musculoskeletal Surgery at Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin. The aim of the new board is to provide scientific advice and develop new projects with the management.

Women in Tech

In addition to technological innovation, our CEO and Prof. Dr. Frebel both see the need to improve diversity, equality, and inclusion in and through the STEM fields. Prof. Dr. Frebel will share advice in establishing targeted recruitment practices to attract more female talent and promote women in the technology sector. To this end, we plan to create scholarships specifically designed for women who want to succeed in the STEM world.
