Who Am I

I am a doctoral researcher on the field of Data Mining and Machine Learning, affiliated with the Database and Information Systems group at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics led by Prof. Gerhard Weikum, and the Exploratory Data Analysis group at the CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security led by Prof. Jilles Vreeken.


I work on the intersection of Information Theory, Statistics, and Optimization, developing theory and algorithms for discovering associations in high-dimensional data of various types. My research can be applied to mine the "most interesting" dependencies in data, including applications such as functional dependency discovery, subspace mining, Markov Blanket discovery in Bayesian networks. To measure interestingness, I employ notions from Information Theory (e.g., mutual information and total correlation) that naturally lead to model-agnostic and interpretable data analysis algorithms. For the latter, I put special emphasis on efficient search algorithms that offer solutions with guarantees. As part of the BiGmax project, I applied my methods in collaboration with Materials Science researchers to the challenging domain of scientific discovery.
