That is my research all about: By unfolding what we call design parameters, existing knowledge collections can be analyzed to build new collaborative knowledge collections in various settings; not only in the web but also in the business context they have gained in importance.

To make knowledge collections successful, we integrate these design parameters by asking:
In my research group we tackle these questions by considering insights from various research disciplines such as Collaborative and Social Computing, Knowledge Management, User-Centered Design, Network Analysis, Information Visualization, and (Semantic) Web Technologies.
