About me

I am a computer scientist and 4th year Ph.D. student at the Digital Health Cluster of the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam. My main research field is biomedical natural language processing in low-resource settings, in particular German-language clinical NLP and information extraction for medical evidence synthesis. Moreover, I am interested in applications of language technology in the context of evidence-based medicine, (precision) oncology, and electronic health records.

Since open data is a key enabler for research progress, I am happy to have contributed publicly available, widely used datasets through our ongoing efforts in the GGPONC project and previously as part of the BPI Challenge 2018.

As a software engineer, I have been working with large-scale Java enterprise systems and 3D computer graphics on modern Mixed Reality HMDs and mobile devices. I am passionate about software design and architecture and their role in AI-enabled components of future software systems.
