Dr. Thiemo Wambsganss
PostDoc – EPFL
Adaptive Skill Learning
Thiemo Wambsganss is a PhD-candidate at the Institute of Information Management at the University of St. Gallen (HSG), Switzerland. His research focuses mainly on the design and application of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning (ML) techniques for AI-powered adaptive learning tools. He is investigating the impact of adaptive dialogue-based agents on the human-computer interaction such as for adaptive argumentation skill learning based on argumentation mining or for conversational agents on course evaluation outcomes. Besides, he focuses on the application of NLP and ML techniques for information extraction of user-generated-content such as on social media (e.g., Twitter) or on online-web-communities.

Andreas Janson is a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Information Management (IWI-HSG) at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. His dissertation investigates how to design digital learning processes. His research interests focus on issues relating to user-centered design of digital services, the understanding of IS appropriation, and decision-making in digital environments. His research results have been published in journals such as European Journal of Information Systems, Journal of Information Technology, Academy of Management Learning & Education, Communications of the Association for Information Systems, the AIS Transactions of Human-Computer Interaction, and in the proceedings of the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, the European Conference on Information Systems, and the International Conference on Information Systems. He has also received Best Paper nominations at major conferences and received the Best Paper award at the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences in 2020.
Dr. Roman Rietsche
Researcher at the Institute of Information Management, University of St.Gallen (HSG)
Intelligent Feedback Systems
Roman’s research interest lies designing and quantitatively evaluating socio-technical information systems using experimental design. Roman’s early carrier is focusing on how to provide effective and helpful feedback to students in large-scale university lectures. Therefore, Roman is analyzing a large quantity of written feedbacks using state of the art natural language processing tools. In 2019, Roman received a one-year research grand from the Swiss National Foundation and was a visiting researcher at Fox School of Business, Temple University, USA and Assessment Research Divison Cambridge Assessment, Cambridge University, England. Before joining the Institute of Information Management, Roman worked as a security consultant and project manager in industry for over two years. Roman received his M.Sc. from the University of Mannheim, Mannheim, Germany in Information Systems with a specialization in Information Technology, his B.Sc. Hons from Napier University, Edinburgh, Scotland in Information Technology and his B.Sc. from the University of Applied Sciences, Furtwangen, Germany in Computer Networking.
