Johannes Haupt holds a M.Sc degree in Economics from Humboldt University in Berlin. His master thesis was the implementation of a machine learning framework to detect tracking images in e-mails. In the course of his PhD, he develops machine learning applications in marketing. This includes predictive modeling in the business context by investigating the cost of foregoing data collection for the sake of privacy and profit-guided model training. He is currently working on models for product recommendation in the form of latent dirichlet allocation and recurrent neural networks. Johannes has been a research assistant at the chair of information systems since April 2016.
