About Me

I'm a natural language processing researcher and currently work at Saarland University in the SFB 1102 project "Controlling Information Density in Discourse Generation. Before that, I worked on predictive dependency parsing and a range of other things.

I obtained my bsc, msc and phd at Universität Hamburg.

I review for the relevant conferences in my field (*ACL, EMNLP, COLING), and was acknowleded as outstanding reviewer for Coling 2018 as well as for providing one or more outstanding reviews at ACL 2017.

Open Access is important to me and I (sadly) hold the record of most publications in the UHH CS open access document server with 22 publications on the server. In addition, I volunteer for the ACL anthology (which is fun and you can do it, too!).

In Hamburg, I was a member of a relatively long list of committes:

  • Academic senate of Hamburg university for (2009-2013)
  • Expert commite of Hamburg University for inspecting academic misconduct (2015-2020)
  • student committee for computer science (2005-2009)
  • Extended steering committee Dep. Informatics (2006-2011)
  • several appointment committees for professorships

And committees which are too much work to translate:

  • Fach-Promotionsausschuss Informatik
  • MIN-Promotionsausschuss
  • Zentralausschuss für Nachwuchsförderung (UHH)
  • Prüfungsausschuss Diplom
  • Studienreformausschuss / Studienkommission
  • Studiengebührenausschuss
  • Dekanfindungskommission (MIN-Fakultät)
