Short Curriculum Vitae

I studied computer science at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. I then joined the Webis group as a PhD student in 2014 after successfully defending my master thesis.

Professional Activities

My main areas of interest are data mining, information retrieval, and reproducibility. I'm the main developer of publicly available tools for web archiving, web page content extraction, historical IP geolocation, and collecting human annotations.

At the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, I have served as member of the search committee for the professorship Intelligent Software Systems (2015). I have been repeatedly teaching assistant for the lectures Search Algorithms (2014), Databases (2015, 2016, 2017), and Web Technology (foundations: 2016, 2017, 2018).

I have served on the program committee of the Web Conference 2018 alternate track on Journalism, Misinformation, and Fact Checking.
