Markus Strohmaier is the Professor for Methods and Theories of Computational Social Sciences and Humanities at RWTH Aachen University (Germany), the Scientific Coordinator for Digital Behavioral Data at GESIS - Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences and an External Faculty Member at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna. Previously, he was a Post-Doc at the University of Toronto (Canada), an Assistant Professor at Graz University of Technology (Austria), a visiting scientist at (XEROX) Parc (USA), a Visiting Assistant Professor at Stanford University (USA) and the founder and scientific director of the department for Computational Social Science at GESIS (Germany). He is interested in applying and developing computational techniques to research challenges on the intersection between computer science and the social sciences / humanities.
My current research focuses on methods and techniques for studying social data on the world wide web. I approach this problem through methods and techniques that are on the intersection between Web-Science, Data Mining and Computational Social Science.
