I am a DFKI Research Fellow and principal researcher at DFKI. I have studied computer science, artificial intelligence, and computational linguistics at the Universities of Regensburg, Koblenz-Landau, and at the Saarland University, Saarbrücken, Germany. I obtained a Dr. rer. nat. degree in Computer Science in 1994, and the Venia Legendi in Computational Linguistics in 2004, both from the Saarland University. Since August 2014 I am an apl. Professor at the Department of Language Science and Technology of the Saarland University.

The core of my research interest is in the field of natural language driven human computer interaction, where natural language is the common interface for extracting, classifying, and talking about information from large-scale unstructured text sources.
