Mohammadreza Tavakoli

Research Assistant

I am a Researcher PhD student in the Joint Lab of the TIB and the Research Center L3S and work on bridging labour market and education in the Learning and Skill Analytics group. In our project, we match between jobs and skills and provide personalised educational recommendation for learners in order to help them achieve the required skills according to their target jobs. I have an M.Sc. in Computer Science from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran. During my Master, I focused on User Behaviour Analysis in the most popular Question and Answer website for programmers, called Stack Overflow, and also, I was Teaching Assistant for multiple courses at Sharif University. Before joining L3S and the TIB, I was a team leader and data scientist at Digikala (the biggest E-Commerce in the middle east) where we analysed customer behaviours.


My research focuses on the following areas:

  • Analysing job vacancies using Text Mining approaches
  • Quality prediction of Open Educational Resources (OERs) using Machine Learning methods
  • Building personalised educational recommender systems based on labour market information
  • Automatic metadata extraction of OERs
