Moritz Schubotz (Dr. rer. nat.) is an interim professor at the University of Wuppertal, Germany. He closely collaborates with the Data & Knowledge Engineering Group, where he was a senior researcher. Together with the Ph.D. students Cornelius Ihle, Dennis Trautwein, and Stephan Leible, he investigates the potential of decentralization technology to advance the Open Science movement. As a Wikimedia Open Science Fellow, Moritz is committed to the FAIR principles and advocates for Open Science in general. As a theoretical physicist, he follows his passion for making mathematics machine-readable. André Greiner-PetterPhilipp Scharpf, and Felix Petersen share this special interest and research methods and tools to make mathematical expressions more beneficial for humans and computers.

He has been an offsite collaborator at NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology, U.S.A) since 2014 and was a fellow at the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo, 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 at his former universities. 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 in the water such as canoe polo and water polo.
