I am a doctoral candidate working on Argument Mining, a relatively young research direction within Natural Language Processing. My research focus is how to aggregate large-scale argumentative content and how to automatically identify topic drifts in controversial debates.

I finished my M.Sc in computer science at Kiel University in March 2018 where I worked in the Knowledge Discovery Group.
