Hi there

I’m working in the LEADS group led by Limor Raviv at the MPI for Psycholinguistics. There, I am exploring how communication emerges among deep nets.

Previously, I did my PhD at Kiel University, Germany with Ansgar Scherp as my PhD advisor, while working as a PhD researcher at ZBW — Leibniz Informatoin Centre for Economics, Kiel and Hamburg, Germany. Before, I received my Master’s in Computer Science from Kiel University in 2017.

My past research has focused on representation learning at the intersection of text and graph data. More specifically, I worked on text classification, information retrieval, unsupervised text representation learning with compositional matrix space models, multimodal autoencoders as hybrid recommender systems, and lifelong learning with graph neural networks.

Interests besides ML: I enjoy surfing and vanlife vacations. I like to play chess to check the current focus of my mind and Yoga to actively restore it. I play the saxophone (but only for Christmas nowadays) and I’m trying to get better with the ukulele.
