I'm currently working as an Applied Scientist at Amazon Core Machine Learning Berlin.
Before starting my position at Amazon, I was a research assistant/PhD student at the Robotics & Biology Lab, TU Berlin. During my PhD, I have been working on a wide variety of topics in the area of artificial intelligence, ranging from robotics, computer vision and artificial language evolution to reinforcement, unsupervised and semi-supervised learning. Before my time in academia, I co-founded and worked for several internet start-ups in Berlin.
