Researcher and PhD student at IfIS. Currently interested in improving the representation of complex events in event-centric knowledge graphs (ECKG). Additionally interested in:

  • innovative query mechanisms for ECKGs (e.g., viewpoint-dependent queries and analogy queries),
  • multiple angles in event reporting (known as viewpoints, journalistic angles, and framing in the literature), and
  • effects of narrative aspects regarding the perception and representation of events.
