The Berlin Connection

Curriculum Vitae

I was born in 1964 in Reinbek. I studied Mathematics and Physics at the Eberhard-Karls Universität Tübingen 1981 - 1984 and then until 1987 at the Freie Universität Berlin. Thereafter I spent one year at the Centre for Cognitive Sciences of the University of Edinburgh, from which I received an MSc in Cognitive Science in 1988. Back in Berlin I wrote my PhD thesis in 1992 under Wolfgang Rautenberg again at the Freie Universität Berlin. After that I spent one year in the Netherlands to do research with Albert Visser and Jan van Eijck on the parallels between natural and programming languages. I obtained my Habilitation in Mathematics in 1997 from the Freie Universität Berlin and in General Linguistics in 1999 from the University of Potsdam. In July 2002 I became an Assistant Professor at UCLA and since July 2006 I am Associate Professor at UCLA. From July 2008 I shall teach an the University of Bielefeld.
