I am Manager of the Machine Learning group and Chief Research Scientist for AI at NEC Laboratories Europe. From 2013-2015 I was a postdoctoral research associate at the Allen School of Computer Science, University of Washington. I was also a member of the Data and Web Science Research Group at the University of Mannheim.

My research interests include representation learning for graph-structured data, geometric deep learning, probabilistic graphical models, and statistical relational learning. My group's methods are concerned with learning, inducing, and leveraging relational structure with applications in vision, natural language processing, and the (bio-)medical domain.

I am also co-founder of several open-source digital humanities projects such as the Indiana Philosophy Ontology Project and the Linked Humanities Project.
