Formerly I worked for the Enterprise Search Group which created the FAST Search for Sharepoint product. The group was previously known under the name FAST Search & Transfer, a Norwegian company which was bought by Microsoft in 2008. I was part of that team since 2003.
I received a Ph.D. in Computational Linguistics from Ludwig Maximilians Universitšt in Munich in 2008 and worked there as part-time researcher and lecturer between 2005 and 2007.
My interest in search engines began in 2002, when I wrote my master's thesis about "Optimization of a search engine for web sites and databases", about the university's search engine. It hasn't left me since. A lot of the ideas I had in this thesis are also applied in a web scale engine, although I cannot claim that somebody listened to my back then.
