Please apologize the crazy layout for now!
I am currently a PhD student at the Database Systems Research Group at Heidelberg University, where I study how large document collections can be made more accessible to people. Additionally, I am a part-time software engineer for Codefy, where we provide legal professionals in Germany with advanced search solutions. If you want to know more about me, consider also checking out my full CV.
I previously did my undergrad and Master's degree in the Applied Computer Science program at Heidelberg University. During my studies, I have also completed an exchange year in the prestigious Computer Science program at the University of Toronto.
Professionally, my interests mainly focus around Complex Network Analysis and Machine Learning, with a special focus on Natural Language Processing in interdisciplinary contexts. I have previously interned at SAP SE in Walldorf, where I was working on optimizations for Machine Learning pipelines. Most of my other professional experience is in teaching, as I have held several positions as a Teaching/Lecture Assistant at during my Bachelor's and Master's. I am fortunate enough that I can continue this during my PhD, where I additionally supervise student projects and theses. At our chair, we put special focus on teaching students real-world skills, which includes regular meetings to discuss high-level progress, as well as in-depth code reviews to teach proper software engineering.
Related to teaching, I also spend a lot of my free time to answer questions on Stackoverflow, where I rank highly in several Machine Learning-related tags, and have been in the top 5% of users every year since 2018. In my remaining spare time, I have previously worked on Metaplx, a project that aims to utilize state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence to automatically extract clinical data from scholarly articles, which can creatly reduce the overhead for medical professionals at all levels. For more of my smaller projects, you can also check out my personal GitHub.
For now, a list of already published research papers is available on my Google Scholar Page. A full list of manuscripts, including preprints and unpublished results, can be found on my university homepage.
