Teaching

At the University of Bergen, I am currently teaching Information Systems and Research Topics in Recommender Systems. Before that I have been working at MODUL University Vienna, where I was teaching the courses on Information Systems Management, Information Systems, Marketing Intelligence and Emerging Tools for New Media and Information Management on BSc, MSc and MBA levels. Before coming to MODUL I was at Graz University of Technology, where I taught, co-taught and assisted a series of courses (BSc and MSc level), such as, Web Science & Web Technology, Introduction to Knowledge Technologies or Information Systems (see full list below). I also regularly co-supervise and mentor BSc, MSC and PhD theses.

Open Theses

If you want to do a thesis under my supervision (PhD, MSc, BSc), please send me an christoph.trattner@uib.no. There are several research topics I would like to give away to very good students!

References

I am happy to provide job/graduate school references to the past students of my courses. However, to get a positive reference and you should earned at least an A on my course and be among the top 10% (for graduate school reference) or top 20% (for a job reference) of students in class. I am also happy to provide references to all students who were working with me in research projects and independent studies producing good results.
