In 2022 I am spending my sabbatical year at Data Mining and Machine Learning group at the University of Vienna as a visiting Professor.
I am an Associate Professor of computer science at the Department of Computer Science, Aalborg University leading the IWIS – Intelligent Web and Information Systems research group where we are primarily dealing with Web Science and Engineering. There, my main interest lie in applied machine learning and data mining, personalization, recommendation, user modeling, preferences, and their application in different tasks. Since 2022 I am an external mentor for PhD students at KInIT. The IWIS group is part of Database and Web Technologies unit where I have served since September 2020 until January 2021 as a coordinator. Since 2012 until 2015 I served as a member on study board for computer science and since 2012 until 2020 I have been on the department council at the CS department. Between 2015 and 2016 I have served as a research leader and research committee member for machine intelligence area at the CS department. Between 2016 and 2018 I have served as a research leader of Web Science and Engineering area at the CS department and as a member of the research committee for that area. I am a member of ACM Hypertext and Social Media conference steering committee since January 2020 (see also the conference ACM SigWeb page). I am also a senior member of Association of Computer Machinery (ACM), a member of IEEE Computer Society. I was a steering committee member of International Conferences of Web Engineering between 2013 and 2016. I was also a member of German Society for Computer Science (GI) until 2017.
