My research topic is the examination of cross-modal interrelations between visual and textual information. This includes the consideration of insights from communication sciences, the research design of deep learning applications to analyse multimodal information and the incorporation of this knowledge into search engines, such as for scientific publications or scientific videos. I am also responsible for the research group’s usability lab, which explores new possibilities of user interaction for TIB’s AV-Portal.
