ABOUT ME

I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Management at the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management. My research focuses on the intersection of data science and economics, with an emphasis on eliciting, aggregating, and evaluating crowd-sourced information.

Before joining Frankfurt School in August 2018, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Institute for Machine Learning at ETH Zurich, working with Andreas Krause. From 2014-2015, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Good Judgment Project at the University of Pennsylvania, working with Lyle Ungar, Barb Mellers, and Phil Tetlock. From 2010–2014, I was a Fellow of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University, where I was working with David C. Parkes. I received my Ph.D. (2014) and Master’s (2009) degrees in Computer Science from Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, Germany.
