My main research interests are methods for semantic similarity analysis and their application for information retrieval. Beyond my core research, I am interested in applied data science and knowledge management challenges and the application of blockchain technology to tackle these challenges.

My research spans the fields of:

  • Information Retrieval (esp. for text, images, and mathematical content)
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Plagiarism Detection
  • Citation and Link Analysis
  • Blockchain Technology
  • Information Visualization

For details on specific projects, please see the links on the right or my publications below.
