Corinna Breitinger received her bachelor’s degree from UC Berkeley in 2011 and her master’s degree in Media and Web Technology from Linnaeus University, in Sweden, in 2016. 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.
She was awarded a 3-year doctoral scholarship by the Carl-Zeiss Foundation. 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.
