About

Since October 2017 I am a PhD student at the Machine Learning Group under the supervision of Frank Hutter and Marius Lindauer. Before that I did my master and bachelor degrees in computer science at the University of Freiburg.

Research Interests

I am interested in all facets of artificial intelligence. My research focuses on new ways to control the behavior of algorithms online. More precisely my research areas include:
  • Parameter Control
  • (Deep) Reinforcement Learning
  • Parameter Importance
  • Bayesian Optimization
  • Automated Hyperparameter Optimization

Publications

Code

  • PyImp: A python package to determine parameter importance based on configuration data.
  • CAVE: CAVE aims to help algorithm and configurator developers to better understand their experimental setup in an automated fashion. An example of a CAVE result can be found here.
