I actively participate in the development of several software projects:

Teaching

I'm involved in the following courses:

I have supervised the following student theses:

  • Christian Kirschner (with Prof. Dr. Iryna Gurevych): Kombination mehrerer lexikalisch-semantischer Ressourcen durch multiple Alignments von Wortbedeutungen (Combining multiple lexical-semantic resources using multiple word sense alignments). Master Thesis, Technische Universität Darmstadt, December 2012.
  • Bastian Laur (with Prof. Dr. Iryna Gurevych): Mining Word Sense Disambiguated Translations from Wiktionary. Bachelor Thesis, Technische Universität Darmstadt, August 2011.
  • Navid Imani (with Prof. Dr. Iryna Gurevych): Graph-based Techniques for Automatic Dictionary Alignment. IREP research project with Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, BC, Canada. Summer 2010.

Together with Stefan Radomski, I organize the specialized Master program "Internet- and Web-based Systems" that is coordinated by Prof. Dr. Iryna Gurevych and Prof. Dr. Max Mühlhäuser.
