I am a PhD student working for the project Argument Structures in the Automatic Detection of Intolerance and Extremism under the supervision of Gerold Schneider and Martin Volk.
My main interests lie in developing methods for natural language understanding and using these techniques to analyze social phenomena on a large scale. Accordingly, I am currently focused on argument mining, stance detection, hate speech detection and alike.
