    Research Interests

    In July 2021 I joined the DMIR research group. My research focus lies on modelling complex end-to-end sensor networks in various application fields, reaching from smart infrastructure to smart health applications. Methodologically, my focus is on exploring the synergy effects between Graph Signal Processing (GSP) and Graph Neural Networks (GNN) as well as on integrating expert-informations out of physics and mechanics into complex graph structures.


    Recently I am working on deep learning models for the classification of sensor and audio data in bee and bird datasets. The goal of this research is to learn more about the acoustic behavior of these protected animals in order to be able to monitor it.

    In October 2022 the research project P-BIM started. Therefore, I am working on the adaptation of civil engineering methods on modelling graph neural networks. Methodologically, I am combining Graph Signal Processing methods with the recent advances of Graph Neural Networks.
