I am a german researcher aiming at applying artificial intelligence to
support personal or organizational knowledge management.
The topic of my PhD in progress is about Context Elicitation by User Observation,
whereas the focus is on personal knowledge management aspects.
I am highly interested in realising innovative and creative software of the future. In particular, I am striving for the utilization of AI technology to support individuals.
I like playing badminton, computer games and board games (german: Brettspiele). I am hosting a web portal called brettspielbrowser.de where I keep statistics on which board games we play often. The brettspielbrowser also categorizes board games and allows to detect similar games.
