I am a machine learning researcher and software engineer with major interests in visual computing. My previous research was mostly related to computer vision: in domains such as robotic perception, autonomous navigation and biomedical imaging. I have high interests in interdisciplinary applications, with my previous projects targeting Computational Perception (with MIT), Healthcare (with Massachusetts General Hospital), Astronomy (with Harvard-Smithsonian Center in Astrophysics) and Microscopy (with Harvard Lichtman Lab).
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 am graduating soon from Harvard University with a Master’s degree in Computational Science. I also hold a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Bonn, Germany in 2016, where I minored in physics and astronomy. I previously worked as a research intern at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), in the Google Brain Robotics group under Anelia Angelova, and Aude Oliva’s lab at MIT CSAIL. I use this webspace for hosting personal projects, and plan to publish some of them publicly here.
