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.
