    About Me

    I received my Diploma in Electrical Engineering from the Technical University Dresden in 2009. In the same year, I joined Prof. Erich Barke's Electronic Design Automation Group at the Institute of Microelectronic Systems at the University of Hannover. I researched methods for automatically generating behavioral models of analog circuits with parameter variations. My thesis is on the adaptation of Support Vector Machines to generate models with interval-valued parameters. I received my doctorate degree from the University of Hannover in 2019. In 2016, I joined Robert Bosch GmbH Corporate Research as a research engineer. I joined the Chair X (Data Science) in 2019 as a post-doctoral researcher.

    Projects and Research Interests

    I am currently doing research in Environmental Sensing and Time Series Analysis. I am interested in furthering methods to enhance existing physics-based models - such as meteorological models, and to further our understanding based on data obtained by sparse and dynamic sensor networks.
