Biographical information

I am a postdoctoral researcher at UKP-TUDA.

I hold a M.A. (Magister Artium) in Computational Linguistics, Economics, and English from Ruprecht-Karls-University Heidelberg. I also hold a Diplom in Mathematics from the same university. In May 2014, I successfully defended my PhD thesis, with the title “Essays on Social Learning and Social Dynamics”, from Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main. From April 2014 until February 2016, I worked as a postdoc at the Text Technology Lab in the CS department of Goethe-University. Since March 2016, I work at UKP. My current work focuses on Deep Learning methods for application scenarios such as Argumentation Mining.
