I’m very excited to be in Doha and to be part of QCRI and to have a chance to contribute to its exciting and ambitious mission.
At QCRI, Ingmar works on social media mining, web science and computational political science. Common to most of his research is the use of online data to understand offline behaviour.
Before joining QCRI, Ingmar was a research scientist at Yahoo! Research in Barcelona working in the area of web mining, analyzing large sets of user log data. Previously, he was a postdoc at EPFL working on sponsored search auctions, tag recommendation and other things. In the summer of 2008 he visited Microsoft Research Cambridge and, before starting his PhD, interned with companies in the area of public key cryptography and the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics. He did his PhD at the Max-Planck Institute for Computer Science and holds BA and MA degrees in mathematics from Cambridge University.
