I am a Privatdozent (PhD. in 2008, habilitation in 2014) and Oberrat (roughly corresponding to Associate Professor) in computer science in the knowledge representation group at University of Erlangen.

Additionally, I am a Visiting Academic (1 day/week) at Amazon.
Previously, I was at Jacobs University Bremen and LRI Paris (part of Univerity Paris Sud).
