Service

Katarina's focus has been the linking and enrichment of linked data for the social sciences, including the automatic integration of research data and publications. In this context, she worked for the DFG projects InFoLiS and Science Linker and the GESIS LOD infrastructure before joining the EU-project OpenMinted where she supported the project team in providing an infrastructure for applying text and data mining technologies on scientific publications. Currently, she is part of the DiscourseData4Policy (DD4P) project at University Düsseldorf. DD4P focusses on AI-based solutions for evidence-based policy making and the analysis of online discourse data.

Research

Katarina's main research interests lie in the field of Natural Language Processing and Text Mining and the development of AI-based approaches for social scientific use-cases. Currently, her primary focus is the analysis of public discourse in social media and the extraction of information from scientific publications.
