I am an assistant professor for Web Science/Human-Centered Computing at the Institute of Computer Science at Free University of Berlin. My research focuses on collaborative knowledge collections that provide a unique research environment for studying existing interdependencies between people’s participation processes (the social system), the employed software (the technical system) and the collectively created artefact (the knowledge system).

By unfolding existing design parameters of these systems, we can design more effective collaborative knowledge creation and learning processes and build new software that augment human cognition by computation. For this, I combine insights from various areas such as computational network analysis, data mining, human-computer interaction, information visualization, knowledge management and the semantic web.

Current fields of application are especially in the area of digital humanities, collaborative ontology development, and digital learning.
