About

I studied Scientific Computing with the minor of Computational Linguistics at the Ruprecht-Karls-University Heidelberg and finished my Master of Science in December 2018. In my master thesis, I work on word and named entity embeddings. Since January 2019 I am working as a researcher and PhD student at the Institute of Computer Science in the Database Systems Research group of Prof. Dr. Michael Gertz.
