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 completed 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:

Publications

Code

  • Leading:
    • DAC: Dynamic algorithm configuration via reinforcement learning and accompanying white-box benchmarks.
    • 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. The video presentation for the corresponding CAVE paper as shown at LION'18 can be viewed here.
  • Involved:
    • SMAC v3: Python implementation of SMAC (Algorithm Configurator) for automatic tuning of parameter configurations on any kind of algorithms.
