Dr Christian Stein studied literary studies, linguistics and informatics at the Technical University Braunschweig.

At the same time, he worked on topics as terminology’s management and models of foreign language, bridging the areas linguistics, informatics and engineering.

Key subjects in his work are semantic networks, spacial theory, epistemology of interdisciplinary and games in academia.
