As of September 2018, I’m coordinator at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Tübingen.

Before that, I was postdoc researcher and principal investigator in project A02 of the CRC991 at the University of Düsseldorf. Before that, I did my PhD within Laura Kallmeyer’s Emmy Noether project at the University of Tübingen. Before that I had been studying General Linguistics, Rhetorics and Computer Science in Tübingen and Berlin.

Research & teaching areas

My research & teaching is concerned with various aspects of computational linguistics (aka. natural language processing) and grammar theory:

  • grammar formalisms & grammar engineering (Tree Grammars; metagrammar descriptions)
  • syntax-semantics interface (valency; modification; secondary predication; idiomaticity)
  • syntax (coherent constructions; ellipsis; long-distance dependencies)
  • sentential and lexical semantics
  • (semantic) parsing
  • metaphor and figurative language
