I am a Junior Professor in the Data and Web Science Group at the School of Business Informatics and Mathematics of the University of Mannheim, funded by the Künstliche Intelligenz Baden-Württemberg initative.  In this role, I lead the research group on Process Analytics. As of October 2021, I am also a visiting professor at the LAMSADE at the Université Paris Dauphine.

Before joining the University of Mannheim in April 2020, I was an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at the Humboldt University of Berlin as part of the Databases and Information Systems Group of Matthias Weidlich. In January 2018, I received a PhD degree from the Department of Computer Science of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, supervised by Hajo Reijers and Henrik Leopold. Earlier, I received a MSc. degree in Business Information Systems (2013) as well as a BSc. degree in Industrial Engineering (2010) from the Eindhoven University of Technology. I was a visiting research at the TECHNION – Isreal Institute of Technology in November 2016 and at the Vienna University of Economics and Business from June to August 2013.

My research focuses on the development of automated methods for process analysis, driven by tailored artificial intelligence techniques. Among others, my work has been published at the international conferences on Business Process Management (BPM), Advanced Information System Engineering (CAiSE), Management of Data (SIGMOD), and Data Engineering (IEEE ICDE), as well as in journals such as  IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering,  Decision Support Systems, and Information Systems
