Between 2011 and 2016 I have been a Ph.D. student at IMS supervised by prof. Jonas Kuhn. My research in the area of Sentiment Analysis was mainly funded by a grant from the Nuance Foundation. I was also involved in the SFB 732 "Incremental specification in context" as part of project D7 "Contextual Sentiment Analysis" (with Hinrich Schütze) and in the project CLARIN-D. I taught Semantic Web and Sentiment Analysis.
