I am a second year PhD student in the Data Analytics Lab. My research interests lie at the intersection of mathematical optimization and machine learning with a focus on non-convex problems. Particularly, I'm curious about training Neural Networks with (stochastic) first- and second-order methods. Before joining Professor Hofmann's group I obtained a master's degree in Industrial Engineering from KIT, Karlsruhe. During this time I also worked as a research assistant at the chair of Continous Optimization of Professor O. Stein and at the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI.
