Computational Semantics - Discourse Processing - Text Mining - Linguistic Annotation
I am interested in understanding and modeling interactions at the syntax-semantics interface, taking influences of discourse factors into account. Most of my past research is about the computational modeling of aspect and genericity. More details here. I am currently also interested in text mining for scientific text.
I am currently the vice president of the German Society for Computational Linguistics (GSCL), the scientific association in the German-speaking countries and regions for research, teaching and professional work in natural language processing. Check out our current activities here.
In case you're wondering ... I am not a university professor but I am lucky to work very closely with several very talented PhD students at our industrial research lab.
