Moritz Schubotz (Dr. rer. nat.) is a senior researcher at the Department for Mathematics at FIZ Karlsruhe - Leibniz-Institute for Information Infrastructure, Germany. As a theoretical physicist and computer scientist he follows his passion for mathematical information retrieval. He applies a bouquet of state-of-the-art computer science technology to academic literature from science, technology, engineering and mathematics. André Greiner-Petter, Philipp Scharpf and Felix Petersen share this special interest and research methods and tools to make mathematical expressions more useful for humans and computers. As a Wikimedia Open Science Fellow Moritz is committed to the FAIR principles and advocates for Open Science in general. Together with the Ph.D. students Cornelius Ihle and Stephan Leible he investigates the potential of Blockchain Technology to advance the Open Science movement.
He is offsite collaborator at NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology, U.S.A.) since 2014 and was a fellow at the NII (National Institute of Informatics, Japan) from July 2017 to August 2018. Earlier, he earned a Ph.D. (summa cum laude) in Computer Science from TU Berlin, Germany.
He has published over 30 peer-reviewed articles and contributed to numerous successful grant applications. He served for several years as elected member in several commissions (Fakultätsrat (faculty board), Haushaltsausschuss (financial steering committee), Akademischer Senat (university board), and others) in the university self-administration.
In his spare time, he enjoys team sport such as canoe polo and water polo.
