Cur­riculum Vitae

Stefan Feuerriegel heads the new Institute of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Management. He holds a dual affiliation as a full professor at LMU Munich School of Management and the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics, and Statistics at LMU Munich.

Previously, Stefan was an assistant professor at ETH Zurich. He gaduated in 2015 with a Ph.D. at the Chair for In­form­a­tion Sys­tems Re­search (Prof. Dr. Dirk Neu­mann), Uni­ver­sity of Freiburg. Dur­ing his re­search stays, he partnered with re­search­ers from the Uni­ver­sity of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, the Na­tional In­sti­tute of In­form­at­ics (NII), Tokyo, Mc­Combs School of Busi­ness at the Uni­ver­sity of Texas at Aus­tin, and Carne­gie Mel­lon Uni­ver­sity (CMU), Pitt­s­burgh. He has also been in­vited as a lec­turer to teach in the Re­search Sprint at Berkman Klein Cen­ter for In­ter­net and So­ci­ety, Har­vard Uni­ver­sity.


Stefan has co-au­thored 70+ journal art­icles and 80+ peer-re­viewed con­fer­ence pa­pers. These works have ap­peared in top out­lets from gen­eral sci­ence (e.g. PNAS, Nature Human Behaviour, Nature Machine Intelligence), man­age­ment (e.g Man­age­ment Sci­ence, Mar­ket­ing Sci­ence) and machine learning (e.g. ICML, ICLR, WWW, KDD, ACL, EMNLP, AAAI). Ac­cord­ing to Google Scholar, his works count 3800+ cita­tions. Stefan currently serves as methodological expert for the Academy of Management Journal (AMJ).

His group is sup­por­ted by vari­ous com­pan­ies (e.g. Google, Mi­crosoft, Or­acle, Nvidia, Amazon) and mul­tiple grants, for which the fund­ing volume totals to more than EUR 5.5 mil­lion. In particular, he received an SNSF Eccellenza Grant, which is the equivalent in Switzerland to the ERC Starting Grant.


Stefan’s re­search is driven by the de­sire to make a dis­tinct­ive im­pact in prac­tice. For this, Stefan was ad­vising SDG Fin­an­cing Lab of the Or­gan­isa­tion for Eco­nomic Co-op­er­a­tion and De­vel­op­ment (OECD) and organized workshops with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). He was a mem­ber of a COVID-19 Work­ing Group of the World Health Or­gan­iz­a­tion (WHO) and an agenda con­trib­utor of the World Eco­nomic Forum (WEF). Stefan’s research further led to the founding of 3 spin-offs: TonalityTech, BLP Digital, and ethonAI.
