I am a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Gerhard Brewka. I obtained my B.Sc. in Computer Science and M.Sc. in Computational Logic both from the TU Dresden in 2006 and 2008, respectively. In 2012, I received my PhD (Dr. rer. nat.) from Leipzig University. My PhD thesis “Default Reasoning about Actions” was supervised by Prof. Michael Thielscher and Prof. Gerhard Brewka. Previously, from October 2008 to February 2011, I was a research associate and PhD student in the Computational Logic Group at TU Dresden. From September 2010 to April 2011, I was a visiting researcher at The University of New South Wales in Sydney. Since May 2011, I work at Leipzig University. My main research interest lies in knowledge representation and reasoning, especially non-monotonic reasoning, action theories and logic programming.
