Christoph Lofi

Assistent Professor at the Web Information Systems group of the Faculty of Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS/EWI), Delft University of Technology.

My research focus is on developing new human-centered query paradigms for modern information systems and databases. Thus, my research covers problems and challenges from several fields like database query processing, data analytics, data and web mining, natural language processing, and crowd intelligence.

In contrast to system-centric query paradigms like keyword search or SQL, human-centric information systems try to realize a more natural user interaction aligned with human perception and human communication behavior. 

My research focuses on several different aspects of this larger challenge, ranging from foundational research in the field of databases to application-oriented research aiming at use the developed technologies to domain specific problems like digital library research, e-commerce, or semantic open courseware.
