About Myself

I am a member of the Text Analytics (LT) group at DFKI in Berlin. My research interests are in the area of natural language processing and machine learning. Particular topics include information and relation extraction from biomedical and clinical data. Within the MACSS project I am focussing on accessing information from German discharge summaries of the nephrology domain.
