Corinna Breitinger

Doctoral Researcher

Recipient of the Carl-Zeiss Scholarship
Supervisor: Prof. H. Reiterer

Office: FC 1.16




I received my bachelor’s degree from UC Berkeley in 2011 and my master’s degree in Media and Web Technology from Linnaeus University, in Sweden, in 2016. Before my graduate studies, I worked in the Silicon Valley as an associate researcher for the tech startup SciPlore. I also completed a 6-month research internship at the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo.

Currently, I am funded by a 3-year doctoral scholarship awarded by the Carl-Zeiss Foundation. 


My research interests include:   

  •     Recommender systems, in particular for scholarly literature and academia
  •     HCI considerations in information management and retrieval
  •     Decision support systems
  •     Implications of blockchain technology for innovation and academia

At the moment, I am especially interested in advancing and developing semantic similarity and citation-based approaches to improve recommendations for academic literature.
