Konstantin Aal studied Business Informatics at the University of Siegen, and is since 2012 an active employee at the department for Business Informatics and New Media of the University of Siegen. Earlier, he was an active student assistant at the come_IN project and wrote, in the mainframe of this project, his major dissertation about the social platform come_NET and its use by children. His focus points are actually the research of collapse prevention in elder people (iStoppFalls), as well as the use of social media during the Arabien Spring.
