(2020 August) My main goal lies currently on best possible contribution to a reasonable and meaningful digitalization. For my professional info, please visit LinkedIn or XING - I try to update them regularly (more or less). I am not updating this website anymore.
(2017 December) Just recently, I joined the team of Computational Life Science IT at Bayer as a Senior Information Architect switching from my research engineer position at the Robert Koch Institute in the data management group. Before that I worked short on my start-up project and longer as a postdoc at the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo, Japan. Previously, I worked several years as a full time researcher at Freie Universität Berlin, Germany.
I hold the Dr. rer. nat. (doctoral/PhD) degree in computer science from Freie Universität Berlin and Dipl.-Inform. (Diploma in computer science, equivalent to M.Sc.) degree from Technische Universität Berlin.
Having broad research experience in the area of applied A.I. including approaches from Semantic Web and Information Retrieval, Text/Data Mining and Machine Learning, recently I have mainly focused on Trend Mining.
While simple engineering is typically about making things work, I am always curious about looking deeper behind them, deliberating on the theory and the formalization in the background. That is how my approach to mining trends in web documents emerged.
