Tim Hussein (former member)

As a postdoctorate, Tim Hussein conducts research in various fields such as recommender systems, context-aware interaction, and adaptive user interfaces in general. In addition to algorithmic and interface-related challenges, he is also interested in psychological aspects of the aforementioned areas. He regularly reviews submissions for international journals and conferences such as CHI, ACM Recommender Systems, IUI, UMAP, Interact, or Mensch & Computer. He also organized various workshops at these conferences. Tim Hussein is head of the Intelligent User Interfaces focus group, coordinating their project and research strategies.

Since 2008, he is an elected representative for the department’s academic non-tenure staff and Ph.D. students. Since 2012, he is member of the governing board of the Interactive Systems section of the GI (German Association for Informatics). He received a diploma in computer science from the University of Dortmund and a doctoral degree (with distinction) from the University of Duisburg-Essen.
