I am a current graduate student in Computational Science at Harvard University, with major interests in machine learning and visual computing. My previous research was mostly related to computer vision: in domains such as autonomous UAV navigation, autonomous driving, traffic scene segmentation and biomedical imaging. I have high interests in interdisciplinary applications, with my previous projects including collaborations with representatives of Massachusetts General Hospital in Healthcare, the Harvard-Smithsonian Center in Astrophysics, and the Harvard Lichtman Lab in Neuroscience.
I’ve been an avid programmer for 10 years now and have a comprehensive background in the Microsoft.NET domain. I was one of the main contributors to the largest German-speaking .NET online community for several years. I also have experience with Python, C/C++, C# and Java, and I taught several courses as a teaching fellow (024 OOSE ST15, 014 ADIP WT15, 024 OOSE ST16). Before doing computer science research, I developed various software applications for non-scientific purposes.
I graduated with a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Bonn, Germany in 2016, where I minored in physics and astronomy. I then worked as a research intern at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), and joined the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) in Fall 2017 as a Master’s student, from which I will graduate in May 2019. During the summer of 2018, I interned in the Google Brain Robotics group under Anelia Angelova. I recently joined Aude Oliva’s lab at MIT CSAIL, where I will work on (multimodal) video understanding. I use this webspace for hosting personal projects, and plan to publish some of them publicly here.
