I am a Professor for Data Analytics in the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University of Wuppertal. I am further SNSF Professor in the Department of Informatics at University of Zurich, where I head the Data Analytics Group (DAG).
My research addresses open questions at the intersection between data analytics, network science, graph mining, computational social science, and machine learning. A summary of my works on higher-order graph analytics for time series data was recently published in Nature Physics.
In 2014 I was awarded a Juniorfellowship from the German Informatics Society. In 2018 I was awarded an SNSF Professorship with a volume of CHF 1.5 Mio from the Swiss National Science Foundation. Since 2019 I hold the Chair of Data Analytics at University of Wuppertal.
