I'm a doctoral researcher working with Gerhard Weikum and Krishna P. Gummadi (MPI-SWS).

I am broadly interested in anything related to online users and language, and especially driven by problems with societal motivations or implications. My current research focuses on privacy aspects of information systems, being placed at the intersection of user-centric privacy, information retrieval, data mining, and the analysis of online communities.

In the summer of 2017, I will be an intern in the Infrastructure Security and Privacy team at Google Zurich.

Prior to joining MPI as a PhD student, I worked as an assistant in the MPI's Ontologies group 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 in Poland, with a thesis in the area of natural language processing.

It is very common that Polish names 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.
