I joined the team of the Institute of Artificial Intelligence in 2017 to pursue my PhD under supervision of Prof. Michael Beetz. I received my Bachelor of Science in Information Systems at the University of Osnabrueck, Germany, and my Master of Science in Management Information Systems at the University of South Florida, US.

My main research interests are
- Web Information Extraction, Knowledge acquisition and processing
- Knowledge Representation using Knowledge Graphs, the Semantic Web, Linked Open Data and connecting it to the KnowRob knowledge processing framework
- AR applications. I am developing HoloLens and Smartphone applications in different environments to showcase the use of web-based knowledge sources
- Machine Learning and Data Mining
