I am a Professor for Machine Learning for Complex Networks at the Center for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science of Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg. 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 machine learning, network science, graph mining, and computational social science. A summary of my foundational 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 2021 I hold the Chair of Computer Science XV - Machine Learning for Complex Networks at Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg.
