Benedikt Loepp, M.Sc.

Benedikt LoeppIn 2011 I received the bachelor's degree in Applied Computer Science from the University of Duisburg-Essen (Thesis title: "Personalized route directions by means of semantic models").
Until 2013, I studied the master program of Applied Computer Science at the University of Duisburg-Essen, finishing with a master's degree (with distinction) in 2013 (Thesis title: "Interactive Generation of Recommendations by Using Latent Factors") .

Since 2003, I have been creating homepages and software applications. Among others, I developed the freeware code editor Webocton - Scriptly. Moreover, I am active in the field of webdesign (Photoshop) and software development (PHP, CSS, HTML, Javascript, Java (JSF, Primefaces, JPA, Hibernate), MySQL, Flash, Python), being familiar with different development technologies (Eclipse, Maven, Hudson/Jenkins, SVN/GitLab, JBoss/WildFly, Tomcat).

Over the years, I have also been working at the University of Duisburg-Essen. I started as a student assistant, giving exercise lessons in Photoshop, assisting in teaching, developing JavaEE applications, etc. In March 2012, I finally joined the Interactive Systems research group as a researcher, and became a PhD student and full member of the research group after having receiving my master's degree in 2013.

My research focuses on the field of recommender systems, in particular, new ways to increase their interactivity. Since 2014, I'm webmaster of the official ACM Recommender Systems web site. Besides, I was involved in the ColognE-mobil project part II, where I was responsible for developing smart navigation solutions for intermodal mobility chains. In the MINTroduce project, I'm the administrative coordinator for Computer Science, supporting study beginners at the university and being responsible for the program’s preliminary courses.
