I am a Research Software Engineer (RSE), and a Software Engineering Researcher.
I’m currently pursuing a PhD in Software Engineering at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Department of Computer Science at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
I’m also developing software for multi-layer annotation of linguistic corpora in the Hexatomic research project, while researching how to implement sustainable software development and maintenance in small research software projects.
My primary research interest is research software sustainability, with a current focus on software citation.
In the past I have worked as an RSE in a number of research projects in linguistics and the digital humanities, and as Managing Editor at Wiley-Blackwell.
I live in Berlin, Germany, with my partner and our three kids.
