I am currently a consultant for NIST’s DLMF project, and a co-developer of LaTeXML alongside Dr. Bruce Miller. My main focus is to enhance the representation of mathematical expressions in DLMF, improving their accessibility, computational semantics, and enabling further reuse in a broader class of applications.
I was a student at KWARC between 2007-2011, under Prof. Dr. Michael Kohlhase. I completed my MSc in 2011, at Jacobs University Bremen. Since then I have been enrolled as a PhD student, now at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg.
In 2012, I first visited the United States as a guest researcher at NIST’s Gaithersburg campus. I had a chance to do three of those visits until 2014.
I spent 2014-2017 as the first hire of Authorea in New York. The three years as a “full stack developer” at a startup were a triple espresso of realism. Authorea has since been acquired by the Wiley publishing company. I learned a great deal!
In 2018, I returned to my work with LaTeXML, which is what I continue to date. We have made great strides in some regards, notably the recent announcement of the ar5iv project and its subsequent adoption as an arXiv Lab at Cornell. I am happy to now also be a registered volunteer contributor with Cornell University, as the “virtual head” of the ar5iv Lab.
In 2021, I joined the W3C Math working group, as a NIST-endorsed independent expert.
My PhD journey is now spanning two continents and over a decade. In 2022, I am in the final write-up phase for completing the degree with Michael.
At present, I reside in New York City, next to the campus of Rockefeller University. I can see the arXiv office at Cornell Tech from my window, which was a completely unplanned - yet delightful! - accident of life.
