Personal profile

Personal profile

Frank joined the ITC in 2014 as an Assistant Professor. His main research interest is where people, geography, and computer science meet: new modes of production and usage of geographic information (crowdsourced and volunteered), related technological and methodological developments (IoT sensors, machine learning), and the impacts on scientific practice (ethics of consent and privacy-preservation, open and reproducible research).

Since 2009, he holds a PhD (Dr. sc. nat.) from the University of Zurich. Previous work includes three years as a post-doctoral researcher at the Joint Research Center of the European Commission and several years as a research assistant at the Universities of Zurich and Hamburg on EU-funded projects on user-generated geographic content and spatio-temporal data analysis in urban contexts.
