Corinna Breitinger received her bachelor’s degree from UC Berkeley in 2011 and her master’s degree from Linnaeus University in 2016. She received her PhD from the university of Konstanz in 2023. She was awarded a 3-year doctoral scholarship by the Carl-Zeiss Foundation.

Before beginning her graduate studies, she worked in the Silicon Valley as an associate researcher for the tech startups SciPlore and Docear. She also completed a 6-month research appointment at the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo.

 Currently, she works as a research associate on topics at the intersection of Information Science and Human-Computer Interaction.


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.


Below, you can find examples of potential student projects.
If a project interests you, simply send me an email. To see all courses of our group, visit our Students Corner.

The slides here are examples of student research projects that I’m currently offering.
