Short Bio

I studied Mathematics (B.Sc.) and Scientific Computing (M.Sc.) at Heidelberg University and spent some time as a visiting student at Tsinghua University in Beijing. I did my Master’s thesis research project at (what is now) the Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence. After that, I obtained a PhD in machine learning at the International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems, hosted by the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the University of Tuebingen. I was supervised by Prof. Philipp Hennig. During my PhD, I interned in the Google Brain team in Montreal and at Google AI in Zurich. From 2020 to 2023, I worked as an Applied Scientist at Amazon Web Services in Berlin.
