Konstantin Aal studied Business Informatics at the University of Siegen and has been working as a research assistant at the Chair of Business Informatics and New Media at the University of Siegen since the end of 2012. Before that, he was employed as a student assistant in the come_IN project for several years and wrote his diploma thesis on the social platform come_NET and use of it by children as part of the project. Currently, his research focuses on fall prevention among seniors (iStoppFalls), as well as the use of social media during the Arab Spring.
