In March 2011 I finished my dissertation at the Faculty of Arts at the University of Zurich in the field of Computational Linguistics. The title of the thesis is: Linguistisch unterstütztes Redigieren: Konzept und exemplarische Umsetzung basierend auf interaktiven computerlinguistischen Ressourcen (published electronically).

From November 2010 to March 2013 I was senior researcher at the German Department at the University of Basel in the OLdPhras project. From 2001 to 2011 I have been working as a computational linguist at the Institute of Computational Linguistics at the University of Zurich in several projects.

From 2003 to 2011 I was an adjunct lecturer at the Faculty of Arts at the University of Zurich. In 2013 I was an adjunct lecturer at the University of Basel.

From 2004 to 2008 I was an e-learning consultant with the Faculty of Arts at the University of Zurich; from 2008 to 2010 I was an e-learning consultant with the School of Social Work at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland.

I studied Computational Linguistics, Spanish Linguistics and Literature, and Political Sciences at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg from 1995 to 2001.

For my Master's Thesis I implemented a morphological analyzer for Spanish (SMM). You can test the system online and read the thesis as PDF. SMM is open source.
