Hi, my name is Tom Wiesing and I am a *PhD candidate* in the *KWARC Group at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg*.

In my free time I like to code and make random websites. I also volunteer for the *Jacobs Alumni Association*, acting as their *Assessor of Information Technology*.

Research

Mathematical practice typically consists of four aspects:

- making
*inferences*about mathematical knowledge; - writing
*narrating*content about specific knowledge; - generating large amounts of informormation and
*concretizing*it in some form of database; and - making
*computations.*

These are connected by a central ontology.

My research topic is how to digitally support such *tetrapodal mathematics* with a focus on search. I am performing this research using research systems such as *MathHub*, *MathWebSearch* and *MathDataHub*.

I am particularly interested in mathematical datasets, and how these are typicalled searched through in practice. Datasets can include anything from simple listings of interesting mathematical objects; via corpora of papers written in LaTeX; to strictly defined objects in some logical system.

Search practices consists of queries and how to evaluate them. Queries can range from simple things like *find all groups with a specific generator* to more complex things like *find all papers that cite a paper which contains a formula that unifies with*

Other Associations

I have visited the *National Institute of Standards and Technology* four times between 2017 and 2021 in order to help work on *LaTeXML*, a software that transforms *LaTeX* documents into annotated *XHTML*.

I was formerly associated to *Jacobs University Bremen*, where I achieved a*Master Of Science* in *Data Engineering* (Class of 2017) and a *Bachelor Of Science* in *Applied & Computational Mathematics* (Class of 2015). I was also the *President of the Graduate Student Association* of Jacobs University for the majority of my final two semesters.
