We are looking for motivated students in the research areas text mining and natural language processing: 

Interests for Bachelor Thesis, Master Thesis, and Guided Research are welcome. If you would like to propose a relevant topic, please contact me for an informal conversation. If I have any open topics, I will announce them here on this page.

Ingo has been a researcher at the chair for Software Engineering of Business Information Systems (sebis) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) since October 2017. He holds a master's degree in Information Systems from TUM and wrote his master thesis about Semantic Analysis and Structuring of German Legal Documents using Named Entity Recognition and Disambiguation.

His research focuses on the intersection between computer science and law. He is very interested in the semantic analysis of legal documents, but also in general in the utilization of AI within the legal domain. Another interesting aspect of this research field is the modelling of legal documents, as well as the legal document creation process. The goal of his research is to expedite the digital transformation of the legal domain. Therefore, Ingo is always looking for attractive use cases to support the work of legal practitioners and realize their processes digitally. Within his research he also cooperates with leading legal scientists and practitioners. More detailed information about this cooperation can be found on and

From a technological point of view, Ingo is interested in applications of natural language processing within the legal domain. He is particularly interested in named entity recognition and linking, as well as in semantic text matching.
