I am a Full Professor at the Department of Informatics (Institut für Informatik) of the University of Zurich. I mainly conduct research on the Semantic Web and Knowledge Discovery. My work draws from both social science (organizational psychology/sociology) and technical (computer science, artificial intelligence) foundations.
Before coming to Zurich I was an Assistant Professor, at the Information Systems Department in New York University's Stern School of Business, and received a Ph.D. at MIT's Sloan School of Management, where I worked with Prof. Thomas W. Malone at the Center for Coordination Science.
