About the article
Katharina A. Zweig née Lehmann
Katharina A. Zweig née Lehmann is a professor of theoretical computer science with a special emphasis on graph theory and the analysis of complex networks at the TU Kaiserslautern. After studying biochemistry and computer science at the University Tübingen (Germany), she worked at the ELTE University Budapest (Hungary) for two years in the biophysics group lead by T. Vicsek with a scholarship from the Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina. She came back to Germany to lead an independent junior research group at the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR) at the University Heidelberg until she received her current position at the TU Kaiserslautern in April 2012. At the TU Kaiserslautern, she was responsible for the design of a new field of study called “Socioinformatics” which combines software engineering with input from sociology, economy, psychology, and philosophy to enable students to model the impact of IT systems on the individual, on groups, and on the society. For this effort she was honored with a juniorfellowship of the Gesellschaft für Informatik in 2013. She is also the current speaker of the juniorfellows.
