I studied at the Graz University of Technology and graduated with a master degree in Computer Science (MSc) in Telematics and hold a PhD with distinction in Computer Science from Graz University of Technology.
After I finished my studies, I worked at the Hyperwave GmbH, the Austrian Web Applicaiton Center department of the Forschungszentrum Seibersdorf and at the Institute for Linguistics at the Universität Graz.
