Algorithmic Foundations

In our research on Algorithmic Foundations, we deal with fundamental problems in computer science that are often part of more general, larger problems. The include, but are not limited to:

  • Text indexing
  • Succinct data structures
  • Algorithms for BIG DATA
  • Parallel algorithms

Education in Computer Science

In the field of Education in Computer Science, we focus on learners' mental models on different educational levels and relating to different topics. These include:

  • Machine Learning in lower secondary education
  • Programming in (higher) secondary education
  • Reflective practices of pre-service teachers
