My user name is my real name. As of March 2014, I am a research group leader at TU Dresden. My most notable contributions to the Wikimedia world have been the Semantic MediaWiki project and my participation in the design of Wikidata. Together with a team of researchers and students, I am currently working on the Wikidata Toolkit project that aims to help developers create Wikidata-based applications. I am interested in all kinds of advances and challenges in the fields of (collaborative, large-scale) information management and databases.
