Stephan Busemann is the Associate Head of DFKI's Language Technology Lab, where he is working as a principal researcher, lab manager and project leader. In 2000, he was appointed DFKI Research Fellow. His areas of expertise are Artificial Intelligence, Computational Linguistics, Language Technology, and Natural Language Generation.

His present research interests are focussed on applied natural language processing, often in the context of industrial contracts: multi-document information extraction and the development of solutions based on multi-lingual shallow language generation.

Stephan Busemann studied Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence and Linguistics at the Technical University of Darmstadt and the University of Hamburg. In 1990, he received his PhD from the Computer Science Department of the University of the Saarland.

In 1984, he joined University of Hamburg to work on language generation within the widely recognized dialogue system HAM-ANS. In 1985, he joined the KIT group at the Technical University of Berlin, where he worked on computational models of Generalized Phrase Structure Grammars (GPSG) and their use for machine translation. His PhD work included the development of a GPSG-based generation system. In 1990 he joined the DFKI, working on constraint-based human language dialogue systems. Later his work also included information extraction, text classification, summarization, language generation, and technology roadmapping. More recent research interests include co-reference analysis of named entities and detection of mutually related information across documents.

Since 1990, Stephan Busemann regularly contributes to teaching students at the University of the Saarland's Computational Linguistics department. He is supervising diploma and MA theses. In 2011 Stephan Busemann became Honorary Professor of Computational Linguistics at the University of the Saarland.

Stephan Busemann was speaker of the Special Interest Group on Natural Language Systems of the Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) from 1995 to 2009.
