About me

During my studies (M.A. in Information Science & Language Technology) at the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf I dealt with data processing, mainly of text or speech data. The main focuses of my studies are Knowledge Engineering, Semantic Web, Data Mining and Text Mining. During my time as a student, I already worked in the conception, implementation and evaluation of retrieval systems in research and industry projects.

Since 2019 I am employed at Fraunhofer FIT as a Data Scientist and work on topics such as digitisation, semantic data modeling and (meta-)data management solutions, in the context of Life Science & Industry 4.0.
