Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Since February 2020, I am a Postdoctoral researcher at the Machine Learning Group. Before that I completed my PhD in computer science at the Vrije Universiteit Brussels, Belgium.
My research interests lie at the intersection of algorithmics and artificial intelligence. In particular, I am interested in how computers can help humans design better algorithms. During my PhD, I worked on automating the design of metaheuristics for solving hard combinatorial optimization problems. At Freiburg, my research is geared towards automating Machine / Deep / Reinforcement Learning. More precisely, my research areas include:
