Biographical Information

I am a postdoctoral researcher and 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 was part of the LOEWE Research Center "Text as a Process", with a focus on Wikipedia Revision History, until end of 2014. Since then, I have been working within the CEDIFOR eHumanities Center, supporting and coordinating various projects within Digital Humanities.
