Thorsten Joachims

Associate Professor
Computer Science

Thorsten Joachims is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University. He joined the department in 2001 after finishing his Ph. D. as a student of Prof. Morik at the AI-unit of the University of Dortmund, from where he also received a Diplom in Computer Science in 1997. Between 2000 and 2001 he worked as a PostDoc at the GMD in the Knowledge Discovery Team of the Institute for Autonomous Intelligent Systems. From 1994 to 1996 he spent one and a half years at Carnegie Mellon University as a visiting scholar of Prof. Tom Mitchell.
