Brief Bio

I am a Feodor Lynen Postdoctoral Research Fellow funded by the Humboldt Foundation and I am affiliated to the Centre for Quantum Software and Information at the University of Technology Sydney as a Visiting Fellow.

Prior to joining UTS, I was a research fellow in the Artificial Intelligence group of the Research School of Computer Science at the Australian National University. Before that I was based in Germany and was a member of the Cognitive Systems Group at the University of Bremen, working in the project R3 of the Transregional Collaborative Research Center 'Spatial Cognition'. I was also affiliated to the International Research Training Group on Semantic Integration of Geospatial Information.

I received my doctoral degree in computer science from the University of Bremen in October 2013, where a part of my doctoral research was carried out at the University at Buffalo and at North Carolina State University. I received my Diplom (MSc equivalent) in mathematics from the University of Bremen in 2009.


My main research interest is spatial and temporal reasoning. I am also interested in other topics in AI, such as knowledge representation and reasoning, natural language processing and causality.
