I finished my Ph.D. in Computer Science in the Kno.e.sis center at Wright State University in Dayton, OH. Until 2006, I used to be a member of the lsdis lab in the Computer
Science department of the University
of Georgia in Athens.
My Research encompasses different aspects of Semantics in Computer Science, from the formal, top-down approaches in ontology engineering to the bottom-up approaches of social knowledge accumulation that can be seen in Wikipedia and Tagging sites.
My undergraduate studies include a BS in Computer Science from the University
of Koblenz and studies in Mathematics, Philosophy and German literature
at the University
of Cologne, both in Germany.
