Johannes Stegmüller is a doctoral researcher in Natural Language Processing at the Data & Knowledge Engineering Group at the University of Wuppertal, Germany.

After three years of working as a developer after his studies, he decided to start his scientific activity, fascinated by the available methods to computationally comprehend the rising amounts of textual data on the internet.

From a technical point of view, he has climbed up to the OSI model since his studies until now: He started studying electrical engineering, then worked on embedded systems, then on P2P-Networking applications. Now he is creating software that processes human communication output in the form of written text.

Before Coronavirus, he spent time organizing Meetups in Mannheim. Nowadays, he is enjoying his free time camping in a tent or hitchhiking.
