Short CV
 

I received my MSc in Computer Science Management at the Vienna University of Technology and my MSc in German Philology at the University of Vienna, both in 2006. My master thesis focused on optimization of communication and is located in between German linguistics, communication theory and computer science.

Currently working on my PhD thesis, I am employed as a researcher at the Department of German Studies at the University of Vienna. At the same time, I'm active as a lecturer at the Vienna University of Technology (Institute of Software Technology and Interactive Systems) and at the Sigmund Freud University Vienna (Department of Psychology).

My research interest focuses on computational linguistics and user modeling methodologies within the field of perception and diction. My teaching activities cover these topics as well as didactic aspects of computer science.
