2019-07I received a Best Student paper award for my resources paper at ESWC 2019.
2019-04I've been invited as PC member to review Industry/In-use papers at ISWC 2019.
2019-02My paper "A Software Framework and Datasets for the Analysis of Graph Measures on RDF Graphs" got accepted at ESWC 2019 resources track.
2016-10I've been invited to the CESSDA Expert-Seminar to introduce Git and Git Workflows.
Research Interests / Papers
My current research activities focus on (RDF) graphs and the analysis of graph topologies of real-world and synthetic/benchmark datasets.
I investigate features of the graph topologies in order to do classification and domain-class prediction, for instance for the datasets in the
LOD cloud. My intention is to (a) optimize the quality of synthetic datasets in terms of similarity to real-worl data,
and (b) to use similarity of graph topologies as a measure for dataset search.

lodcc - framework
A software framework to prepare and perform a graph-based analysis on the graph topology of large-scale RDF datasets. It enables you to extract a bunch of measures from an RDF graph at large scale (i.e. the english dbpedia with 2.6 billion edges). See an example study which has been conducted on 280 datasets from the LOD Cloud.
A slack-bot which notifies you via private message if your process is finished. This is convenient in situations where you have long running (scientific) processes, running on a server, that you have to wait for to finish. The can also be used to monitor server swapping and low hard disk.
Sythetic Dataset Generator
"datazilla" - Generate realistic test data for any schema. Supports highly normalized and polymorphism-enabled schemas.
Metadata Discovery Vocabulary
Implementation of the disco-spec, the DDI Discovery Vocabulary for social science data. The implementation enables to use the DISCO-model as an object-oriented model in Java. Example implementation can be found in MISSY.
