I'm a PhD candidate advised by Gerhard Weikum and Krishna P. Gummadi (MPI-SWS). The overarching goal of my research is to understand and quantify threats to user rights and well-being in digital systems, as well as to design new systems that respect their users. My doctoral work has focused on privacy and fairness in information retrieval.
Prior to joining MPI as a PhD student, I was a member of the YAGO team headed by Fabian M. Suchanek, contributing to projects in the area of information extraction and knowledge bases. I got my MSc and BSc degrees from the University of Wrocław, Poland. Outside of academia, my professional experience includes work on large-scale privacy infrastructure as an intern at Google Zurich, and two years of software development for e-commerce systems with the creative bunch at Mirumee among others.

It is common for Polish names to have diminutives. Asia is a diminutive form of Joanna, not a nickname, and not a continent name :-) If you're curious how to pronounce it, have a look here.
