I am looking for PhDs/postdocs!

September 2022: Excited to share the news that our Villum Synergy project "Illuminating microbial dark matter through data science (DarkScience)" got funded, together with Mads Albertsen, and Thomas D. Nielsen. Some details are available here (Danish, Google Translate can help). We‘re hiring (details)!

August 2022: Happy to share the good news that I have joined the Pioneer Center for AI as an affiliated researcher

August 2022 (Publication): Our paper on "Metagenomic Binning with Assembly Graph Embeddings" has been in Bioinformatics, joint work with A. Lamurias, M. Sereika, M. Albertsen, and T. D. Nielsen

June 2022 (Panel): I really enjoyed participating in the SIGMOD 2022 D&I Panel: Success and Impact Beyond Traditional Metrics.

June 2022 (Talk): I‘m excited to give a keynote on "Data Science and Interdisciplinary Research: Challenges, Darkmatter, Drugs, and Lessons Learned" at the FONDA (Foundations of Workflows for Large-Scale Scientific Data Analysis) retreat in Berlin.

May 2022 (Talk): I enjoyed visiting Angela Bonifati at Universite de Lyon 1 and give a talk on "Provenance for knowledge graphs: data, queries, and beyond".

May 2022 (Event): Participated in the Metadata 4 DKG Workshop (part of the COST Action on Distributed Knowledge Graphs) in Lyon.

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.
