Since 2015 I am a Professor for Information Science at the University of Applied Sciences, Darmstadt.

From 2013-2015  I worked as a Post-Doc at the Institut for Educational Research and Educational Information (DIPF) in Frankfurt, in cooperation with the Ubiquitous Knowledge Processing (UKP) Lab at the TU Darmstadt.

From 2008 until 2013 I worked in companies -- among others EML.

I did my PhD at EML Research (now Heidelberg Institut for theoretical Studies) under the supervision of Michael Strube.

I studied computational linguistics in Stuttgart, Edinburgh and Cambridge.



Currently, I am involved in two research projects:

My research interests are in using natural language processing (NLP) in other research areas. Specifically, I have worked in the following areas:

  • summarization
  • quality of summarization and evaluation
  • emotion detection/sentiment analysis
  • speech recognition
  • speech synthesis
