Cristina Mihale-Wilson studied International Economics and Public Policy (M.Sc.) at the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz. Her main areas of studies were Development Economics and Public Economics. During a study abroad semester at the University of Cape Town, she completed modules dedicated to discussing the challenges of globalisation to developing countries, the economics of natural resources and macroeconomic policy. In her Master Thesis “Determinants of the successful reintegration of long-term unemployed,” she investigates if the Big Five personality traits, as well as other psychological and sociological factors, are potentially beneficial or detrimental to the reintegration of long-term unemployed into the labour market.

She obtained a Bachelor degree from the Friedrich-Alexander- University of Erlangen-Nuremberg and the Universidad Catolica del Uruguay. In her Bachelor Thesis, she analysed the effect of demographical changes on national trade balances.

Cristina Mihale-Wilson has extensive practical experience as an IT Consultant. She held several IT Consulting positions, where she focused on the topics: digitalisation, IoT and Smart Services.

Cristina Mihale-Wilson is a research assistant at the Chair of Information Systems and Information Management at the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. Her research focuses on economic and social aspects, and potentials of AI and AI-based systems. Currently, she is working in the interdisciplinary project ForeSight, which aims at developing an open AI-based platform for context-sensitive, intelligent and predictive services in the field of Smart Living. Within the 3-year project, she is researching the suitability, economic potentials and sustainability of building smart services and AI-based systems for the Smart Living industry.
