I am an assistant professor at the Faculty of Computer Science at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano in Italy. I aim at improving personalized services (e.g. recommender systems) through the usage of psychological models in personalization algorithms. To achieve this, I use diverse research methodologies, including data mining, machine learning, and user studies.
