- Currently, I am a research scientist at the Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence (BCAI).
- From 2017 to 2018, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Empirical Inference Department of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Tübingen, Germany, working with Bernhard Schölkopf.
- There I lead the research project "Cafeteria Coordination": machine learning and game theory for coordinating users of shared facilities and more efficient use of resources, based on a data privacy agreement reached with work councils.
- From 2013 to 2017 I pursued my PhD (Dr. rer. nat.) under the supervision of Dominik Janzing, Bernhard Schölkopf and Marc Toussaint at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the University of Stuttgart, Germany.
- In 2015, I did an internship at Microsoft Research Cambridge, United Kingdom, supervised by Katja Hofmann.
- From 2006 till 2012, I studied mathematics and philosophy at Humboldt University of Berlin and at Heidelberg University, Germany.
Full curriculm vitae
Generally, my research interests spans several topics within the fields — and in particular at the intersections of — multi-agent systems and machine intelligence:
- machine learning and intelligence:
- causal inference (in particular, quasi-experiments, counterfactuals and the relationship to reinforcement learning),
- time series analysis (in partiular, demand forecasting, Kalman filtering, exponential smoothing, RNNs),
- mathematical logic, but also computability and computational complexity theory (in partiular, Gödel incompleteness),
- multi-agent systems:
- coordination games (in particular, congestion games),
- game dynamics (in particular, best-reponse dynamics, but I'm getting into ficticious play, no-regret dynamics as well),
- broadly, social and business decision making.
Generally, I like to take a "holistic approach", and I think many relevant problems in the world need such an approach: a combination of
- starting with real-world problems, taking into account social and normative aspects,
- thinking about theory,
- ending up with useful, innovative technology and actual interventions, yielding feedback for the next steps, as well as scientific publications.
