    Projects and Research Interests

    I received my 1. State Examination for the teaching profession at grammar schools (Computer Science and Physics) in 2016. Afterwards I graduated in 2018 with my Master's Degree in Computer Sciences. In May 2018 I started my PhD in machine learning at the Data Mining and Information Retrieval Group.

    I'm currently working on the applications of machine learning in the we4bee project.
