About

@EACL 2014 in Gothenburg, Sweden (picture by Hui Li).

PhD student and researcher at the Institute of Computer science at Heidelberg University in the Database Systems Research group, supervised by Prof. Dr. Michael Gertz. I am currently working on temporal relation extraction for narrative texts as a member of the heureCLÉA project and quotation attribution.

I studied Computational Linguistics at the Institute of Computational Linguistics at Heidelberg University and worked as a research assistant at the Computational Linguistics research group, supervised by Prof. Dr. Anette Frank.
