At the University of Ulm, I have obtained my Diplomae (equivalent to MSc or MD, as regards content) in Computer Science, Mathematics, Medicine and Physics in the years 2003, 2005, 2006 and 2011; in 2008, I recieved my PhD in Medicine.

From 2007 to 2010, I have completed my PhD thesis in Mathematics on the topic of Arithmetic Geometry, under supervision of and in cooperation with Prof. Werner Lütkebohmert in Ulm.

From 2010 to 2013, I have worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Prof. Klaus-Robert Müller's Machine Learning Group, at the Technische Universität Berlin, and I have been an associate member of Prof. Günter Ziegler's Discrete Geometry Group, at the Freie Universität Berlin.

In 2012 I was appointed Leibniz Fellow at the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach where I will spend a total of six months, split over 2012, 2013 and 2014.

Since August 2013, I am working as a lecturer (comparable to assistant professor) at University College London.

Research Summary

My primary research interest consists of using algebra and combinatorics to find practically relevant structure in data. Naturally this includes the study of interactions between

Algebra and Algebraic Geometry, Discrete Geometry and Probabilistic Combinatorics, and Statistical Modelling,
called Algebraic Statistics.

My research aims at finding novel algebraic and combinatorial methods which can be applied in

Statistics and Machine Learning,

that is, to construct methods and algorithms for real world data. In particular, I am interested in understanding, and solving

Ill-Posed and Inverse Problems,

by finding and using the structure therein.
