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.
Enrolled UHH students will find the slides at the Stine portal and on our GitHub organization.
