Wolfram Wingerath appointed

Dr Wolfram Wingerath (34) has been appointed Junior Professor of Data Science at the University of Oldenburg's Department of Computing Science.

He was previously Head of Data Engineering & Research at Baqend GmbH, a research spin-off from the Universität Hamburg.

Wingerath studied computer science at the Universität Hamburg, where he also completed his doctorate in 2019. The main focus of his research is at the intersection between web technology and data management. The real-time database system InvaliDB, which he developed as part of his doctorate, is now being used commercially. His work helps to improve website loading speed. Another subject of his research is the analysis and prediction of user behavior to make surfing the web a smoother experience.

The computer scientist is also an expert in hands-free coding – the use of speech recognition and eye tracking in software development. Wingerath not only uses and develops these methods himself, he also co-founded the Handsfree Coding initiative at the Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI).
