Felix Lange works as a
student assistant at the Database Systems and Information Management
(DIMA) group at Technische Universität Berlin, where he also studies
Between 2001 and 2006: Felix studied German Linguistics and History at the Humboldt-University of Berlin. He focused on Theoretical Linguistics, in particular on the mapping of syntactic structures to semantic representations (the so-called Syntax-Semantic-Interface). Besides from that, he acquired some basic skills in computer-aided Quantitative Linguistics. During an internship at Brockhaus-Duden Neue Medien GmbH, the digital-media-section of the publisher, he worked on the linguistic core of the search-engine-component of Brockhaus Encyclopedia’s digital version.
Since 2006: After completing his studies in Linguistics, Felix began to study Computer Science at the Technische Universität Berlin in 2006, which he will probably complete with a Master’s degree in the spring of 2011. His focus is on Computational Linguistics, Machine Learning and Business-IT. From 2008 to 2009 he worked as tutor for an introductory course on Java, and later on for an introduction to business informatics. After a short working period at the Network Account Services Department, a branch of the IT-Section, at the Berlin branch of KPMG, he began working for the DIMA group at Technische Universität Berlin. Besides from giving tutorials related to DIMA-lectures, his main focus here is on the GOOLAP search engine project, which is managed by Alexander Löser. At the moment, the main challenge is to automatically generate patterns for web-crawls, that give the right arguments for pre-defined semantic relations. To this end, methods of Computational Linguistics are applied.
