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.  Before that, 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.

I currently hold a junior professorship in Artificial Intelligence Methods, funded by the Künstliche Intelligenz Baden-Württemberg initative. My research focuses on the development of automated methods for process analysis, driven by tailored artificial intelligence techniques. My work has, among others, been published in IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering,  Decision Support Systems, and Information Systems.
