I am the debuty full professor (W3) of the research group Web Science at the Institute AIFB of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany since October 2020.

My research lies at the intersection of

  • knowledge representation,

  • machine learning, and

  • natural language processing.

Among other things, I pursue research on scholarly data mining (e.g., scientific impact quantification), scholarly recommender systems (e.g., citation recommendation), and scholarly knowledge graphs (e.g., modeling papers, methods, and datasets). Furthermore, I develop AI solutions for peace mediation.

You can find more information about my research here. My works are listed under Publications and on Google Scholar.

In the past, I had worked as postdoctoral researcher in Prof. Dr. York Sure-Vetter's research group "Web Science" at KIT. I was also part of Prof. Dr. Georg Lausen's research group at the University of Freiburg and prestigious JSPS fellow at Kyoto University in Japan. In 2017, I obtained my PhD in Prof. Dr. Rudi Studer's research group "Knowledge Management" at KIT. The title of my PhD thesis is "Semantic Search of Novel Information."
