About

Since March 2019 I am a PhD student at the Machine Learning Group under the supervision of Frank Hutter. Before that I did my master degree in computer science at the University of Freiburg.

Research Interests

I am interested in all facets of deep learning. More precisely my research areas include:

  • Neural Architecture Search
  • Automated Hyperparameter Optimization
  • Transfer Learning and Meta Learning
