After a stay at the University of Texas, Austin, I have received my diploma degree in Computer Science in 2011 at the University of Würzburg. Since then, I have been part of the DMIR Research Group lead by Andreas Hotho. As one of the first PhD students in the DMIR Group, I was strongly involved in building the DMIR Group from the ground up. It is now consisting of nine motivated researchers; with a strong tendency to quickly grow even further. In the process I was working on a variety of interesting research subjects including behavioral change in participatory sensing campaigns and the internet of things (EveryAware), semantics (Posts II), digital humanities (Kallimachos), and sport analytics. Currently, my main interest are navigational behavior models in different contexts such as human mobility as well different forms of web navigation, e.g., in crowdsourcing environments, social bookmarking systems like BibSonomy, or Wikipedia. On a methodological level I am strongly interested in Bayesian methods such as model comparison via Bayes factors or Bayesian models for explaining sequential data. Currently, my focus shifts a little towards neural networks and their relation to Bayesian approaches.
Finally, my time as a PhD student is coming to an end and I am looking for a PostDoc position (preferably in an English speaking country), with interesting folks and awesome methodology.
