As you maybe already read on the front page, my name is Florian Blum and I live in Mülheim an der Ruhr in Germany.
After studying applied computer science at the University of Duisburg-Essen I'm currently working at the chair of Prof. Dr. Volker Gruhn where I do my PhD in the area of Blockchain-oriented Software Engineering and Blockchain Software Architectures.
If you are interested in my research about Blockchain technology, have a look at the research page.
My name is Florian Blum since I got married. Previously my name was Florian Wessling (or more precisely "Florian Weßling", with the special character Eszett). I'm mentioning this because my previous research papers are published with my old name and I want to make sure this website can still be found. ;)
Do you know that my first and last name now perfectly fit together? Here is a funny anecdote: "Florian" is derived from the Latin word "florere", meaning "to blossom" or "to bloom", while "Blum" is a shortened form of the German word "Blume" which means "flower". Isn't that nice? 😊
