ExpLAIN: Between the Lines – Knowledge-enhanced Argument Analysis in a Formal Argumentation Reasoning System

Funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) as part of the Priority Program “Robust Argumentation Machines (RATIO)”


As I originally studied to become a teacher in Math and Computer Science, I naturally have a high interest in teaching activities. Thus, I held tutorials or exercises for the following lectures (recent to old):

Network Analysis, Business Informatics II: Foundations of Modeling, Artificial Intelligence, Algorithms and Data Structures, Formal Foundations of Computer Science, Programming Lab II, Analysis I, Programming in C
