- Date: 28.02.2014
On February 18, Johannes Kunze von Bischoffshausen received one of the few annually granted IBM Ph.D. Fellowship Awards for his research on sales force analytics and optimization. Johannes is a Ph.D. student and member of the graduate program “Service Research” at the Karlsruhe Service Research Institute (KSRI). During his – still ongoing – research he collaborated intensively with IBM teams from around the globe. He worked on joint projects with its Business Performance Services (BPS) department, spent a 3-months internship at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights (NY), and contributed to the BizTech project “Smarter Commerce Through Advanced Business Analytics”. The latter project resulted in an application for a patent.
