I work as a postdoctoral researcher on the Open Research Knowledge Graph project in the Data Science and Digital Libraries group at TIB. My research is in the area of machine learning of natural language with project experience mainly in developing supervised machine learning techniques for natural language processing. I hold a PhD from the University of Texas at Dallas where my research focus was on relation mining from natural language text with a specific focus on time and space relations. I have since worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Davis, where I studied the application of natural language processing techniques to software engineering tasks under the umbrella of the Naturalness of Software initiative. Following this and before joining TIB, I spent a brief period in a startup environment in industry developing concept discovery software solutions.
