Research Interests

  • Digital Humanities
  • Supervised and weakly supervised machine learning
  • Supporting eHumanities through tool creation/adaption


Natur und Staat - Together with Alexandra Núnez (linguistics) and Malte Gerloff (philosophy) I am working on the corpus "Natur und Staat" (1903-1911), a collection of "Preisschriften" concerning the interpretation of Darwin's theories in political and sociological context.

Student Guidance

I currently co-supervise or have co-supervised the following students and research assistants

  • Hannah Wieland: Crowd Sourcing Novel Metaphor Annotations, (BSc final thesis, 2017)
  • Hanish Goel: Automatic Adaptation and Creation of Domain-specific Lexical Resources for Opinion Mining (MSc final thesis, 2017)
  • Heiko Reinemuth: Noisy Text Normalization with Character-based Recurrent Neural Networks (BSc final thesis, 2016)
  • Deborah Buth: Corpus-Based OCR Post-Processing of German Historical Texts (MSc final thesis, 2015)
  • Ute Winchenbach: Opinion Mining on German Historical Texts (BSc final thesis, 2015)

Biographical Information

I hold a Diplom (equiv. to M.Sc.) in Mathematics from Technische Universität Darmstadt. In November 2014 I was granted a 3-year PhD scholarship with the program "Knowledge Discovery in Scientific Literature" (KDSL) at the TU Darmstadt.
