I am a professor (W1TTW2) for Semantic Systems in the Computer Science Dept., MIN Faculty, University of Hamburg since May 2021.
Born and raised in Halle (Saale), I did my bachelor's and master's of computer science at Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg. After two years in an industrial R&D lab in Leipzig, I joined the University of Leipzig where I graduated with a Dr. rer. nat. (Ph. D.) in 2017. In parallel to graduating, I joined the newly established chair of data science (Prof. Dr. Axel Ngonga) at the University of Paderborn as a postdoc. In 2019, I became a member of the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Search Systems (IAIS), where I was given the opportunity to build a new location in Dresden together with Prof. Jens Lehmann.

My research interests circulate around knowledge-driven, semantic-driven technologies and methods to enable computers to understand and help humans. As such, the semantic systems research group focuses on bridging the gap between human and machine-understandable data. We explore knowledge extraction and validation, search and question answering, and also FAIR benchmarking technologies.
