I am a professor of Data Science at Aalborg University‘s Department of Computer Science and research leader of its Data, Knowledge, and Web Engineering group. I am also affiliated with the group of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning and Aalborg University's AI for the People Center.

My research is rooted in data and knowledge engineering and spans theory, algorithms, and applications of Data Science including graph databases, knowledge graphs, querying, analytics, and machine learning.

Prior to joining Aalborg University, I was a postdoc in Gerhard Weikum's Databases and Information Systems group at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics in Saarbrücken, Germany, and received my PhD in Computer Science from Ilmenau University of Technology, Germany.
