I recently joined the Probabilistic Numerics Group (September 2017) as part of the IMPRS-IS (International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems) to work on Optimization methods for machine learning.
Prior to joining the MPI, I finished my studies in Simulation Technology (B.Sc. and M.Sc.) and Industrial and Applied Mathematics (M.Sc) at the University of Stuttgart and the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven respectively.
Our goal is to understand the principles of Perception, Action and Learning in autonomous systems that successfully interact with complex environments and to use this understanding to design future systems
