About me

I am working as a postdoctoral reseacher in Prof. Gerhard Weikum's Group at Max Planck Institute. I recieved my Ph.D. from TU Kaiserslautern under supervision of Prof. Sebastian Michel in 2018.

My research interests include information extraction and data mining. Specifically, I am working on mining and extracting interesting facts from web and building efficient quantitative question answering system.
