I am Jonas Oppenlaender, a doctoral researcher in the Crowd Computing group at the Center for Ubiquitous Computing, University of Oulu, Finland, working towards a PhD in Computer Science, advised by Associate Prof. Simo Hosio. Previously, I was a research assistant (Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter) at the Human-Centered Computing group, Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin.

I hold a MSc degree in Computer Science (with Distinction) from the University of Southampton, UK, and studied Industrial Engineering in Germany and Sweden.

I am interested in building web-based socio-technical systems in which the human and technological elements perform complex tasks better than either human or machine could independently.

I lived, studied and/or worked in Germany, Switzerland, France, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Macedonia, the United States, and Finland.

My current research interests can be found here. Some of my past interests include crowdsourcing, crowd feedback systems, creativity support tools, collective intelligence, web science, ontology engineering, semantic web, linked data and social machines, knowledge transfer, computer supported collaborative work, e-science, hypertext and hypermedia, online communities.
