Karl's doctoral work involved developing a data quality model and framework for the food composition database FoodCASE. This work is now being taken further in the context of the EU project TDS-Exposure where he is co-leader of a work package developing a set of data management tools and data exchange interfaces for managing food contaminant data. The system being developed, called FoodCASE-Risk, is based on FoodCASE, but involves a number of modifications and extensions to meet the requirements of risk assesors and risk managers as well as supporting various data and data exhange standards.


Karl studied computer science at ETH Zurich, obtaining a Diploma in Informatik in 2004. He then worked at Balzano Informatik AG for three years before returning to ETH Zurich in 2007 to do a PhD under the supervision of Prof. Hans Hinterberger. He joined the GlobIS group when Prof. Hinterberger retired and completed his Doctoral Thesis in 2012. He is now working part-time as a post-doc in the GlobIS group, leading the activities for the EU project TDS-exposure.
