Hi, this is my website. My name is Fabian Flöck and I'm currently finishing my PhD in the area of computational social science / web science. I created this site to make some of my research publicly available. Basically this site is about research on effects of the web and on the web. My main topic is social dynamics, data mining and visualization on Wikipedia, but I'm interested in the social and content creation processes in any kind of collaborative platform and also in Human Computation.

I worked as an research associate at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Institute AIFB. Currently, I'm a researcher at the GESIS Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences in Cologne.
