I am a tenure-track professor for language technology, machine learning and digital humanities at the Computer Science Department, Jena. In more simple terms: I am a computational linguist. The general goal of my research is to build computational models of language use in text and dialogue, with applications in natural language generation, dialogue systems, language & vision.

Before becoming a real (junior) professor in 2019, I worked as a temporary professor for theoretical and applied computational linguistics in Bielefeld. I did a PostDoc at CITEC, Bielefeld, a PhD at IMS, Stuttgart and got my Magister (Master) degree in Computational Linguistics from the Linguistics Department, Potsdam.
