Who Am I

I am a postdoctoral 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 am a Machine Learning and Data Mining researcher working on the fields of Causality, Statistics, and Optimization. I develop theory and algorithms for a variety of applications including feature selection (both supervised and unsupervised), interpretable learning (e.g., decision trees), and rule discovery. Throughout my career I always emphasized computational and statistical efficiency, interpretability, and reliability. That is, analysts and practitioners can use my methods to efficiently retrieve the results they want, and at the same time understand and trust them to represent aspects of the underlying (causal) mechanisms.. As part of the BiGmax project, I applied my methods in collaboration with Materials Science researchers to the challenging domain of scientific discovery.
