I hold a PhD (Dr.) in Computer Science from the Technical University of Darmstadt, which I received in 1986. I became Associate Professor in the computer science department of the University of Dortmund in 1991 and was appointed Full Professor for computer science at the University of Duisburg-Essen in 2002. My current research interests are retrieval models, networked digital library architectures, user-oriented retrieval methods and the evaluation of digital libraries.

I have served as regular PC memeber of major international conferences related to information retrieval and digital libraries, such as ACM-SIGIR, CIKM, ECIR, SPIRE, ICDL, ECDL, ICADL, FQAS. I was PC chair of ECIR 2002, IR track chair of CIKM 2005 and Co-Chair of SIGIR 2007. For the German IR-group GI-FGIR, I served as Chair from 1992-2008.

I am a member of the editorial boards of the journals Information Retrieval, ACM Transactions on Information Systems, International Journal of Digital Libraries, and Foundations and Trends in Information Retrieval.
