I am a fifth-year doctoral student at the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. I am also associated with the Intelligent Agents Software Group. Currently, I am working with Jim Herbsleb of the Institute for Software Research International, Robert Kraut of the Human-Computer Interaction Institute and Katia Sycara of the Robotics Institute. My interests are in the Semantic Web, open source software development, service composition, semantic web mining and interoperation within multi-agent systems. In another age, I was an undergraduate at the Computer Science Department of the Technical University of Aachen in Aachen, Germany.
