Andreas Lanz is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Mannheim in Germany and a visiting postdoctoral research fellow at the IDC Herzliya in Israel. His research interests lie primarily in understanding and predicting individual as well as aggregate behavior in social systems, especially in two-sided markets such as user-generated content networks. In collaboration with SoundCloud, the world’s leading user-generated content network in the music domain with more than 170M users worldwide, he has been investigating influencer marketing decisions by means of data-based simulations as well as empirical and analytical models.
