About me

Since April 2013, I am Professor and Chair of Digital Humanities at the University of Passau.

My research interests cover a wide range of topics in the emerging discipline of Digital Humanities. I am focusing though on computational methods and tools for historical research ("digital history"), philology and cultural studies in general. Among other activities in this area, I am developing methods for the processing of complex historical texts, textual variation and genetics, digital editing, on advanced manuscript studies, and visualization of historical data.

Please refer to my Website at the Chair of DH for up-to-date information.
