Research interests

I am interested in processes underlying contemporary and historical patterns of species distribution and diversity. So far, my research focused on the biogeography of tarsiers, small nocturnal primates endemic to insular Southeast Asia, applying methods ranging from behavioral observations to Next-Generation Sequencing. Currently I am involved in setting up BIOfid, a specialized information service for biodiversity research. This collaborative project between the Senckenberg Biodiversity Informatics team, the Text Technology Lab of the Goethe-University Frankfurt and the University Library J. C. Senckenberg in Frankfurt aims at mobilizing biodiversity data from historical and modern literature sources. My main task is the structured compilation and linkage of biological, environmental and meta-information promoting the development of new text mining tools for ontology based semantic search.
