PhD student in Machine Learning.

I’m a PhD student in machine learning at the Technical University of Munich, where I’m supervised by Stephan Günnemann.

My current research focuses on temporal point processes (TPP) — probabilistic models for continuous time event data, such user activity on social media or spike trains in neuroscience. I’m interested in both the modeling aspect (“How do we make TPPs more flexible and scalable?”) as well as their applications (“How can we use TPPs to solve real-world problems and better understand our data?”).

My broader interests include generative models, deep learning for graphs, time series forecasting and anomaly detection.
