Summary

I worked at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Germany, from 2011 to 2012 as a postdoctoral research assistant as part of the Web Technology and Information Systems (WebIS) group in the Faculty of Media. The position was for a German national research grant called "Strategies for Robust Design of Structures", and informally called the "Robust Design Project". The aim of the project was to apply machine learning and data mining techniques to civil engineering problems, specifically dealing with bridge construction and simulation.


Matilda

The Matilda project, which stands for "Mining Artificial Data", was the name of my stream of the Robust Design Project dealing with "Visual Data Mining". The other streams were called "Strategies for Robust Design" and "Interactive Service-Oriented Interaction Models", which were being worked on by staff in civil engineering, visualization, and collaboration research fields. A web page was set up for reporting the key outcomes of the project.
