Consultation on Appointment

I am an Assistant Professor at the Institute for Data, Process, and Knowledge Management at Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU Wien). Before that I carried out my research project “A holistic analysis of participatory budgeting” for which I was granted a Erwin Schrödinger Fellowship by the FWF. In this project, I explored Participatory Budgeting not as an isolated voting instance, but as a multi-year, city-wide process that consists of several stages. From September 2021 to April 2023, I worked on the project at the University of Amsterdam as a member of the COMSOC Group of Ulle Endriss and from May 2023 to May 2024 at TU Wien as a member of DBAI

I work mainly in the fields of Computational Social Choice (COMSOC), Logic and Knowledge Representation. In general, I am interested in studying and developing tools that help people make better decision, individually or as a group. In particular, I currently work on non-standard voting frameworks such as Participatory Budgeting and Perpetual Voting, on the representation of preferences, and on computational complexity questions that arise in COMSOC and logic.

Besides my research work, I am also the co-founder of the European Digital Democracy network, which aims to bring together academics and practitioners actively working on or with digital democracy.
