After completing my PhD in Graph-based Mining and Retrieval at the Max Planck Institute for Computer Science in Saarbrücken, Germany, in 2009, I joined Microsoft Research in Cambridge, UK, as a postdoctoral researcher, where I worked on probabilistic inference in knowledge bases. In 2011, I joined the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany, where I led the Web Mining and Analytics Research Group. Mid 2014, I joined SCHUFA Holding AG, where I currently hold the CTO position. Since April 2018, I am also leading the Data Science and Analytics Research Group at the University of Tübingen.
