My mission is to build socially beneficial, interpretable and theoretically substantiated machine learning systems.
I am a member of Pembroke College, funded by the Cambridge-Tübingen PhD fellowship with generous donations from Microsoft.
My background is in Physics and Mathematics. I was fortunate to spend time at Harvard, working with Paul Chesler and Wilke van der Schee, as well as at Stanford, working with William East and Tom Abel.

- I organized the first external CamTue workshop in November 2017 on Mallorca.
- I thoroughly enjoy teaching, was active in the Schülerzirkel Mathematik in Regensburg, a TA for many courses in Math, Physics, and CS, lectured a semi-annual course on Computer- and Microcontroller-Technology, and co-lectured the course Green-IT at the summer academy 2016 in Leysin, organized by the German Academic Scholarship Foundation.
- I like building things, for example: Babyzen - A flexible sensor BoosterPack [codeproject article][short video][report (pdf)] or some things here.
