I am a researcher, developer and consultant in the field of Document Engineering and have over 15 years of experience working with PDF and HTML(+CSS+JS) documents on topics including table recognition, automatic tagging, accessibility, layout optimization and conversion between the two formats.

I am member of the PDF Association and participate in its Technical Working Groups on Responsive and Accessible PDF. I am also a member of Committee 069 at Austrian Standards International, which represents Austria in the ISO Technical Commitee for PDF (TC171/SC2).

I was previously employed at HP Labs in the field of Automated Publishing, working on delivering documents for screen (desktop and mobile devices) and print. Prior to this, I worked in academia, where I co-organized the ICDAR 2013 Table Competition. I am located in Vienna, Austria and am available for both on-site and remote contract work.

Prior to my position at HP, I worked in academia at the Zukunftskolleg, University of Konstanz working on semi-flexible layouts and at IUPR, TU Kaiserslautern on the Decapod project. Before, I was at PRIP and DBAI, TU Wien. I wrote my doctoral thesis at the Database and Artificial Intelligence Group at TU Wien under the supervision of Prof. Georg Gottlob.
