My work applies data-intensive, statistical methods to linguistic questions, with a focus on the syntax-semantics interface and lexical-semantic phenomena. As a main challenge I consider the linguistic and cognitive plausibility of the approaches with respect to the tasks.

The topics of my research include grammar development, corpus-based lexical acquisition, and the application to lexicography and machine translation; the automatic induction of semantic classifications, the compositionality and meaning shifts of German multi-word expressions, the evaluation of corpus-based semantic knowledge, and cognitive explorations of semantic relatedness.

I am affiliated with the Chair on Foundations of Computational Linguistics, headed by Prof. Jonas Kuhn. For details on my research and my teaching check out my personal homepage and my project pages. Here's a picture of my current group members (across projects):
