About me

I am a Teaching Professor at Washington University in St. Louis. I teach and develop courses in machine learning and data science on all levels in the undergraduate and graduate curriculum. I also oversee the data science bachelor programs in the CSE department und promote diversity and inclusion in CS education. In my research we study ways to help course instructors bridge the feedback gap that arises when teaching and managing large CS classes. To this end we use sentiment and text analysis to predict emotions in students’ unit-of-study or homework reflections.

I joined the CSE faculty in July 2015 as a Lecturer for machine learning and cloud computing. Before that, I was a phd student in the Knowledge Discovery and Machine Learning research group at the University of Bonn (2010–2015) and a research assistant at the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS and the Bonn-Aachen International Center for Information Technology.

Ph.D. in Computer Science (Dr. rer.-nat.), University of Bonn, Germany
M.S. in Business Mathematics (Diplom Wirtschaftsmathematik, Univ.), University of Ulm, Germany
B.S. in Business Mathematics, University of Ulm, Germany

Oh, and try to remember:
