Research Interests

My research interests include various topics in both mathematics and theoretical computer science.
I am currently working on the following subjects.

  • fixed-parameter tractability and enumeration
  • data profiling
  • analysis of time series data
  • evolutionary computation and black-box complexity
  • randomized algorithms
  • algorithmic learning theory

I have been involved in past and ongoing research projects in the Algorithm Engineering group. These projects include scientific work with our students as well as collaborations with our partners in industry.

Talks

In October 2018 I was invited to the Dagstuhl seminar on Algorithmic Enumeration to give a talk about Efficiently Enumerating Hitting Sets of Hypergraphs Arising in Data Profiling (slides).

In recent years I had the opportunity to present my work at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, the University of Glasgow, and the Humboldt University Berlin. My contributed talks include presentations at ALENEX, ALT, FOGA, GECCO, IPEC, and STACS.

Teaching

As Teaching Assistant

Other Activities

In the Algorithm Engineering group I am one of the mentors to the new members. I also maintain the group's news feed and do some of the TYPO3 content management on our sites. Besides my studies I try to increase article quality in the German Wikipedia, especially in the math and computer science section.

In 2015 I was a tutor at the HPI Schülerkolleg teaching school children basic computer science.

I played Go as a member of the team Jena III in the German Bundesliga in the 2014/15 season.
