Curriculum Vitae

I am a Postdoc at the University of Potsdam. I received a Master’s Degree in Computer Science (Diplominformatiker) in 2010 and a Ph.D. (Dr. rer.  nat.) in 2016 from the University of Potsdam. I am interested in machine learning. My current research interests lie in generative adversarial networks, and data science. Machine learning has many diverse applications, and I am working on some of them: computer security (detecting of malware, analysis of encrypted network traffic), precision medicine, and model-building for various applications.
