Biographical Information

I am a postdoctoral researcher, co-coordinator of the ArgumenText technology validation project, as well as coordinator of the BMBF-funded eHumanities Center CEDIFOR.

I hold an M.A. (Magister Artium) in Computational Linguistics, Spanish and General Linguistics from the Universität zu Köln. In October 2011, I was granted a 3-year PhD scholarship within the Hessian excellence program "Landes-Offensive zur Entwicklung Wissenschaftlich-ökonomischer Exzellenz" (LOEWE).  In July 2015, I successfully defended my PhD thesis about Online Mass Collaboration in Wikipedia.


I currently co-oordinate the technology validation project "ArgumenText". Previously, I have been working within the CEDIFOR eHumanities Center, supporting and coordinating various projects within Digital Humanities. Until end of 2014, I was part of the LOEWE Research Center "Text as a Process", with a focus on Wikipedia Revision History.
