- Currently, I'm a postdoctoral researcher at the Empirical Inference Department of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Tübingen, Germany, working with Bernhard Schölkopf.
- 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.
- From 2006 till 2012, I studied mathematics and philosophy at Humboldt University of Berlin and at Heidelberg University, Germany.
Full curriculm vitae
My research interests spans several topics within the fields — and in particular at the intersections of — inference, computing, multi-agent and dynamics:
- inference and computing:
- 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),
- general machine learning,
- mathematical logic, but also computability and computational complexity theory (in partiular, Gödel incompleteness),
- cloud computing (in particular, data-driven approaches to modeling and control, but also economic and privacy problems),
- multi-agent and dynamics:
- 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.
Working at the intersection of theory and applications, my research — ideally — starts with real-world problems and ends with interventions on the real world.
