I am a full professor of Data Management at TU Wien‘s Databases and Artificial Intelligence research unit. As a professor in the Department of Computer Science at Aalborg University, Denmark, I have been leading the Data, Knowledge, and Web Engineering. 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.

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. In the past couple of years, I have gained extensive experience in interdisciplinary data science in collaborations with colleagues from bioscience, health, and environmental assessment.
