Prof. Dr. Roman Klinger

Prof. Dr. Roman Klinger heads the BamNLP research group and is professor for  Fundamentals of Natural Language Processing.

He studied computer science with a minor in psychology, holds a Ph.D. in computer science from TU Dortmund University (2011), and received the venia legendi in computer science in Stuttgart (2020). Before moving to Bamberg, he worked at the Institute for Natural Language Processing in Stuttgart, at the University of Bielefeld, at the Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing, and the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Roman Klinger’s vision is to enable computers to understand and generate text regarding both factual and non-factual information. This finds application in interdisciplinary research, including biomedical text mining, digital humanities, modelling psychological concepts (like emotions) in language, and social media mining. These topics often constitute novel challenges to existing machine learning methods. Therefore, he and his group also contribute to the fields of probabilistic and deep machine learning.
