I am an Applied Scientist for Alexa AI at Amazon. Before that, I was a PhD student at the UKP Lab, Technische Universität Darmstadt. For my PhD project, I worked on linking texts to knowledge bases and on automatic question answering. I have recently published on the topics of relation extraction, semantic parsing for question answering and weak supervision.
I have more than 8 years of research experience in natural language processing and machine learning. Before I started the PhD program, I have completed a master degree in NLP at the University of Tübingen and had an experience working at a machine translation company. From November 2018 to January 2019, I was interning at Factmata and working on automatic evidence-based claim verification.
I have published in EMNLP, COLING, ESWC, *SEM and other venues. I was a PC member of/reviewer for ACL 2018-2021, CONLL 2018, EMNLP 2018-2020, NAACL 2020-2021, RepL4NLP 2019, GSCL-2017, Journal of Natural Language Engineering. At Technische Universität Darmstadt I have supervised 7 student theses and have taught a course on Natural Language Processing with Python for 3 years.
