    Projects and Research Interests

    Explainable Artificial Intelligence  -  Anomaly Detection  -  Machine Learning

    I am part of the Data Science Chair since I recieved my Master's Degree in Computer Science from the University of Würzburg in early 2019. I have worked in the past on investigating the explainable detection of anomalous and fraudulent behavior in ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems in the DeepScan project. As part of the AI@Knauf project, I am currently working on integrating machine learning approaches into industrial manufacturing processes.

    My research focus is the domain of explainable artificial intelligence (XAI). Here I work on providing intuitive explanations for decisions from complex anomaly detection approaches.
