Saeedeh Shekarpour received her PhD with honors in Germany at the University of Bonn. There, she collaborated with the AKSW research group—leading, world-class group in Semantic Web—in Leipzig University and the EIS research group in Bonn University. There, she initiated and led SINA, a Semantic Search Engine over Interlinked Data. She addressed a number of challenging research topics related to question understanding, interpreting, rewriting, expansion, formal query construction and evaluation on federated Linked Data. Saeedeh also spent one year as a postdoctoral researcher in the EIS research group at the Bonn University and is currently a postdoctoral researcher with Prof. Amit Sheth in the Kno.e.sis center. She has an outstanding publication record in WWW, AAAI, IEEE WI, IEEE ICSC, ESWC, ISWC, the Journal of Web Semantics, etc.
